LEEDS HOPING TO TIE DOWN BRAZIL MIDFIELDER TO NEW DEAL

English Premier League club Leeds United are facing a huge fight to keep their star player Raphinha. The Brazil international winger is one of Leeds’ prized assets but he has constantly been linked with a move away from the club following series of consistent performances under manager Marcelo Bielsa. He was reportedly close to leaving the club last summer, with Arsenal said to have shown interest in acquiring his services but Leeds were having none of it and rebuffed any negotiations aimed at getting him away from the club.

The club are therefore expected to table a new contract extension proposal to the Brazilian star as they wish to convince him to continue his career at Elland Road.

BIELSA TARGETING SEVERAL SIGNINGS FOR LEEDS THIS SUMMER

Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa has revealed that he would be glad if he could make one or two signings for the club but insisted that the club will not be in any rush to make new signings. The Leeds United boss is regarded as one of the most attack-minded managers in the English Premier League and has also earned a lot of praise for how well he has built his Leeds United side over the years. After helping the club secure promotion from the Championship to England’s top-tier league over a year ago, his players took the league by storm and almost defeated Liverpool at the beginning of the season.

He has now revealed that he would love to build on their finish last season by bringing in players that would help improve the overall quality and depth in the squad.
