Arsenal, Chelsea and Newcastle make move for Raphinha as the Barcelona star ponders next move
Raphinha could be on his way back to the Premier League following an underwhelming season at Barcelona.
The Brazil international arrived at the Camp Nou last summer following a £55million move from Leeds United.
In his first season with the La Liga giants, the forward scored 10 goals in 45 appearances across all competitions.
According to Diario Sport, Raphinha is now considering a move away from Barcelona as he fears his position in the squad could be compromised by Ousmane Dembele and the potential return of Lionel Messi.
The player is also concerned about his involvement with the Brazil national side should his playing time decrease in Catalonia. Raphinha has made 16 appearances for Brazil since 2021, scoring five goals in the process. Should Raphinha opt for a move away from the club, his most likely destination is in the Premier League. Arsenal, Chelsea and Newcastle are understood to have reached out to Raphinha's representatives, according to journalist Joaquim Piera. The reporter believes Barcelona are willing to part ways with the forward for around £62million. Raphinha enjoyed a successful spell in the Premier League with Leeds United, scoring 17 goals in 67 appearances across all competitions. One of those goals came against Brentford on the final day of the 2021/22 campaign as the Whites avoided relegation.
