Tottenham ‘willing’ to pay upto £60m for technically-gifted South American

By Saikat -

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for the Barcelona winger Raphinha in recent weeks. 

The 27-year-old could be on his way out of the Spanish club at the end of the season. Barcelona are going through financial difficulties and they could look to cash in on the player. If a substantial offer is presented.

A report from SPORT (h/t SportWitness) claims that Tottenham could be willing to pay up to £60 million for the Brazilian winger. Raphinha has shown his quality in the Premier League with Leeds United in the past, and he could prove to be a useful addition to the Tottenham attack as well.

The Brazilian mostly operates on the right wing, but he is versatile enough to operate on either flank. He will add creativity, goals and flair to the side. He will help create goalscoring opportunities for his teammates with his passing and execution in the final third. His ability to beat the defender in one versus one situations will help Spurs break down rigid defences as well.

Raphinha was one of the best wingers in the Premier league during his time at Leeds. However, his form at Barcelona has not been spectacular. A return to England could be ideal for him. Returning to his comfort zone could give him a confidence boost and a fresh start.

Tottenham are pushing for Champions League qualification and they need a deeper squad to do well across multiple competitions next season. They will need to reinforce their attack in the summer and signing a versatile winner like Raphinha would be a good decision.
