The race is wide open for one of the most sought after attackers this summer, according to the latest reports.
Chelsea’s name will obviously be thrown into the hat for any attacker player available right now, due to this being an area on the pitch that Thomas Tuchel wants to improve in this summer.
But it does seem very clear that Chelsea are at the very least interested in Leeds United winger Raphinha this summer, but then they are far from the only club.
Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has the latest on this situation and he claims that Arsenal have scheduled a meeting this week to discuss their offer for the player, with Leeds holding out for £65m.
Barcelona have already agreed personal terms with the player but there have been no new bids from them.
And Chelsea are still very much in talks with his agents, and the race is being described as ‘open’.
