Arsenal are now in the running to sign Raphinha from Leeds United, according to Fabrizio Romano.
The winger has been the Whites’ brightest spark this season. He’s their top scorer and has consistently produced moments of absolute quality on the right wing.
Arsenal supporters will no doubt be delighted by this rumour, but one man who could be absolutely delighted if Arsenal sign Raphinha is Ian Wright.
In fact, the former Gunners forward has made no secret of how much he is a fan of the Brazilian.
what was said
Wright was full of praise for Raphinha in last year’s game of the day.
“I love her,” Wright said. “It’s a pleasure to look at.”
“Raphinha from Rennes for £17m. You think to yourself when you look at some of the wingers in this league that cost a little bit more than him and they don’t do half what he does.
Wright once again praised Raphinha after his goal against Everton last season when speaking to Premier League Productions.
“That was a very good goal. I know Kalvin Phillips was the man of the match, but Raphinha, we saw the work he did,” Wright said.
“He occupies the number 10 area and you can see the difference in their fitness levels.”
pleasure to watch
Wright said it’s a pleasure to see Raphinha in this Leeds team and he’s absolutely right.
The Brazilian would certainly hold a candle to Bukayo Saka if he were to join Arsenal and his work output and skill would quickly endear him to the Gunners’ fan base.
If Arsenal manage to sign Raphinha, they will get an incredibly talented player who could absolutely make the Emirates shine.
