Liverpool are expected to sign Leeds United winger Raphinha during the summer transfer window, that’s according to Juve Live.

The report claims that Leeds are looking to sign Douglas Costa in the summer as Raphinha looks all set to join Premier League rivals, Liverpool.

Juve Live claim: “Leeds coached by ‘loco’ Bielsa would like to be able to adequately replace the departing Raphinha (Liverpool destination) with a profile of the same quality, and Douglas Costa could be that type of player.”

Will Raphinha be joining Liverpool next season?

The 24-year-old joined Leeds United in the summer of 2020 from Rennais and so far, he’s had a positive impact at Elland Road.

During his 17 Premier League appearances, the winger has scored four and assisted four goals for Bielsa’s side and it will not be a total surprise to see him join Liverpool in the summer.

Klopp is sure to bring in reinforcements for the next season and Raphinha could very well be one of them. But the big question is what will happen to Mo Salah if Liverpool are planning to make a move for the Leeds United winger?

Both Salah and Raphinha play on the right wing and we are more than certain that the Brazilian wouldn’t want to join Liverpool just to play second fiddle to Mo Salah next campaign.

Klopp cannot guarantee both the players equal game time either so if this report of Liverpool making a move for Raphinha is serious then the Anfield outfit are surely planning to put Mo Salah up for sale in the summer.
