Whether or not an official approach will happen is yet to be seen, but there is some hope given that no other clubs are close to agreeing a deal. Barcelona have had an agreement with Raphinha on personal terms since February, and would like to see a deal wrapped up to bring the Brazilian to the Nou Camp.
But their offer of £35million is almost half of the £65m Leeds require, meaning they are nowhere near close to a deal for the former Rennes winger. Elsewhere, Arsenal have made the only official bid for Raphinha, yet their offer was knocked straight back by the Yorkshire outfit.
The Gunners are looking to drastically improve their front line with the signings of Gabriel Jesus amongst others, whilst Fabio Vieira has already signed from Porto. And Tottenham are also keeping tabs on the situation, with Romano suggesting that the north London outfit are preparing a proposal for his services.
