Liverpool opens transfer talks for Leeds united star forward
Liverpool have Hu allegedly open contract talk to sign Leeds united star Raphinha per Leeds live.
The Brazilian only joined Leeds in October 2020, but he’s already caught the attention of Liverpool, whose interest in the player is well known.
However, a potential transfer move for Raphinha could be made more difficult if he extends his contract with the club, although his current deal expires in 2024.
Leeds United reporter for Leeds Live Beren Cross said in a Q&A session: “Contract talks between Leeds and Deco, Raphinha’s agent, are ongoing.
“There is confidence a deal can be struck and the Brazilian will move onto terms which accurately reflect his status at the club and in the league.
“Raphinha is not making life difficult for anyone in any way around this deal. Naturally, I cannot predict the future or what Raphinha’s camp may choose to do, but the noises are positive and it would suit all parties to sign a new deal and secure his value.
” Evidently, there is going to be plenty of interest in him this summer, whether he signs a new contract or not. It will be two full seasons under his belt and clubs will feel they can tempt him away after proving himself at this level in a new country.
“Leeds will of course only sell at the price they are happy with. Whether that’s in the summer, next January, or summer 2023 remains to be seen.
“Do not overlook what the World Cup may do to his value if he’s still a Leeds player by then.”
