Tottenham Hotspur are lining up a summer move for the Brazilian international Raphinha.
The 26-year-old has not been able to live up to the expectations since his move to Barcelona and he is being linked with a return to the Premier League this summer.
The 26-year-old has nine goals and 10 assists to his name across all competitions, and he could prove to be a useful acquisition for Tottenham.
A report from Fichajes claims that the Brazilian is now ‘one of Tottenham’s targets’, and he is a popular profile with the North London club because of his versatility and Premier League experience.
He was a key player for Leeds United in the Premier League, and he managed to establish himself as one of the best attackers in the country during his time in England.
Tottenham need to add more depth and quality to their attack and the Brazilian could be a solid acquisition.
A return to England could help him regain his form and confidence next season.
Tottenham Hotspur are yet to appoint a quality replacement for Antonio Conte, but they are already planning for the summer transfer window.
They will face competition from North London rivals Arsenal, who wanted to sign Raphinha back in January.
Time will tell whether Tottenham can fend off the competition from the Gunners and secure the 26-year-old’s signature at the end of the season.
Arsenal are probably better placed to sign the player because of Champions League qualification and their ability to compete for the major trophies right now. Tottenham, on the other hand, could miss out on a top-four finish and they are going through a transitional phase as well.
