Chelsea have made an approach to Leeds about a possible transfer deal for Raphinha

The Brazil international is likely to be one of the most in-demand players in world football this coming summer – when he will only have two years left on his contract – and is wanted by a host of clubs.

Thomas Tuchel is a massive fan of the player and there was even some talk in the media that Chelsea were eyeing up a deal during the January window, but eventually opted against making a move

However, there has been some reports in the media that we were ready to battle Barcelona in the summer to try and win the race to complete a deal for Raphinha.

Now, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano, the club were working on a deal to bring the Brazilian to the club this summer.

Leeds are currently in a relegation dogfight, and could find themselves out of the Premier League by the summer. This would see the talented winger look for a move – one that his play has deserved.

Now in the Brazilian national team, Raphinha has scored nine goals and added two assists for the West Yorkshire side this season – with Liverpool also reportedly vying for his signature.

Chelsea dont really need him in the squad, but with Hakim Ziyech getting on a bit, he could be an ideal candidate to replace the impressive Blues winger

Raphinha is a player that should not be playing in a team that is fighting to stay in the Premier League, he is a player that should be helping us win more titles.

So lets see if the club actually make a move, he would be welcome
