"Liverpool do like him" - Raphinha's agent alleges Reds interest

Raphinha's agent claims Liverpool are interested in signing the Leeds United star. 

The Brazilian has shone under Marcelo Bielsa following his €20million move from Rennes a year ago.

Talk of Liverpool interest flared up in the summer, with Jurgen Klopp's frontline in need of refreshment and depth. However, there was little substance to the mooted window-shopping.

Raphinha is represented by former Porto, Barcelona and Chelsea playmaker, Deco. And he's told Globo Esporte that his client is attracting interest from clubs of arguably greater stature than the residents of Elland Road.

"Raphinha has become an important player in the Premier League," said Deco, "The club knows he has grown and things will happen naturally.

"He is young, he has many challenges ahead, there are certainly several clubs that like him, and Liverpool do like him, there were surveys, but nothing official.

"Leeds wanted to keep him for another season." 

Raphinha has started all seven of Leeds' Premier League games this season, finding the net against Everton, Newcastle and West Ham.

He's contracted to the Yorkshire club until June of 2024, but Deco believes it inevitable that Raphinha will move on before then.

"Raphinha is happy at Leeds," the agent said, "And for sure the time will come to take the biggest leap in his career, to take a step forward.

"He has three more years of contract, but it is not the contract that defines the length of stay or prevents transfer.

"Leeds are aware, they will want to make an important sale, and Raphinha will end up growing in his career."
