Arsenal set to make improved Raphinha bid

Arsenal are expected to make an improved bid for Leeds United forward Raphinha.

Arsenal's opening bid for Raphinha was rejected as it fell below Leeds' valuation of the Brazil international.

Leeds are under no pressure to sell Raphinha, 25, as he has two years left on his contract - although he is not expected to sign a new deal at Elland Road.

Barcelona are also understood to want to sign Raphinha, whose agent is the former Barca player Deco.

The Brazil international joined Leeds from Ligue 1 side Rennes on a four-year deal in October 2020, contributing six goals and eight assists in 29 Premier League games in his debut campaign, while last season the player managed 11 goals and three assists in his 35 league matches.
