Another Brazilian star to join Silva at Chelsea but Tuchel faces Barca competition
Chelsea were not busy during the winter transfer window but a number of highly rated players have continued to be linked to join Thomas Tuchel at Stamford Bridge during the summer transfer window.
Chelsea is reportedly planning a summer swoop to secure the services of a Brazilian winger, who plays for Leeds United and is also wanted by Barcelona, according to goal.
The 25-year-old Leeds United star has been surrounded with transfer speculations linking him with a move out of Leeds since the past month, with Chelsea being known to be a good admirer of the South American attacker.
Raphinha’s contracts with his present club will be coming to an end soon and Leeds wants him to extend his contract, but the Brazilian looks to have been faced with making decisions regarding his future at the Clubs.
Barcelona has been known with a keen interest in the winger and looks interested in adding some strength to their attack, as Ousmane Dembele could leave the Camp Nou this summer for free.Chelsea will be looking for an attacking reinforcement in the summer, as they plan to bolster their attack having seen their summer signing Romelu Lukaku failing to pick form and Timo Werner yet to display his word-class goalscoring abilities while at Bayer Leverkusen.
Raphinha has been able to play 23 games for Leeds United this season and has registered 9 goals.
