Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea will have to pay over £50m for attacking target

Posted by

Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea have been linked with a move for the Barcelona winger Raphinha at the end of the season.

The 27-year-old winger could be on the move at the end of the season and the three clubs have now been alerted to his availability. According to a report from TBR football, intermediaries have informed clubs that have indicated a desire to sign the Barcelona winger in recent months.

However, the winger will cost over £50 million this summer. Barcelona are looking to make a profit on him and it remains to be seen whether Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea are prepared to break the bank for him.

It is no secret that Arsenal will have to bring in a quality winger this summer. They need more depth in the wide areas, and the arrival of Raphinha will not only add goals and creativity to the side, the Brazilian would also allow Mikel Arteta to rest key players like Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli.

Furthermore, the South American knows the Premier League well having played in it with Leeds United. He could make an instant impact next season.

Liverpool could use Raphinha if Mohamed Salah leaves

Liverpool might need to bring in a quality replacement for Mohamed Salah, who is nearing the end of his contract at Anfield. Salah will be a free agent in 2025 and Liverpool could be under pressure to sell him this summer if he does not renew his deal with them. Raphinha could prove to be a useful alternative.

As far as Chelsea are concerned, the Blues have shown interest in signing the player and it will be interesting to see if they decide to make a move for him in the summer. Players like Noni Madueke and Mykhailo Mudryk have been quite underwhelming this season and it is no surprise that the Blues are keeping tabs on wingers.

The 27-year-old could improve all three clubs and it will be interesting to see where he ends up.
