Tottenham Hotspur are willing to make a summer bid for Barcelona winger Raphinha. He is player who recently claimed he really likes Arsenal in the past. Spurs have been fantastic in each of the last two transfer windows. Spurs are keen to continue that next summer. Raphinha is reportedly a player on their radar now and they want to get it over quickly.
Raphinha to Tottenham could benefit both parties
Now, Sport has claimed that Barcelona need to make some big sales in the summer. And even though Raphinha wants to stay. But he could be pressurised to leave to balance the books.
Barcelona signed Raphinha from Leeds United before the start of last season. That was in a £55 million deal. The Brazilian was a star in the Premier League for Leeds. He was incredible for Leeds and was linked with plenty of clubs before he moved to Spain, including Tottenham.
There were claims that Spurs were actually prioritising a move to sign Raphinha. This is ahead of Richarlison back then. But the winger chose Barcelona in the end.
Raphinha has scored four goals and provided seven assists for the Catalan clun in 20 games this season. His contract at the Barcelona doesn’t expire until the summer of 2027.
The two sets of fans in North London do not like each other. And although most Tottenham supporters would likely take Raphinha, they’ll definitely not appreciate what he has said about Arsenal in the past
