Arsenal reportedly want Leeds star who dreams of emulating Thierry Henry

Arsenal have reportedly asked Leeds for information about the potential signing of Brazil international Raphinha. A 2021 player told the Players’ Tribune he hopes to one day emulate Thierry Henry.

Raphinha, 25, has had two extremely successful years in the Premier League with Leeds. In 57 Premier League games, Raphinha was involved in 27 goals – scoring 15 and providing 12 assists. A change is expected.

Barcelona are heavily linked with a move – with some reports even suggesting loaned Wolves ace Trincao could be included in a deal. But Fabrizio Romano says Barcelona are not alone in their quest for Raphinha.

In fact, Romano reports that Arsenal have now asked for information on Raphinha. The mirror report that Leeds want prospects to pay £67m to sign the Brazilian. Raphinha wants to emulate Henry.

Speaking to the Players’ Tribune in 2021, said Raphinha: “I grew up with Thierry Henry’s goals. I would watch the Prem with my dad on the free-to-air channels. Henry flew, Man. The runs, the finishes, it was crazy.”

If Arsenal sign Leeds ace Raphinha, they might have their new Henry…

Raphinha is a top talent. Already a Brazil international, he scores or assists in every other Premier League game. From the right flank he is arguably one of the best players outside of England’s top eight teams.

He shares Henry’s technical aspect of completing that ability to glide with the ball with aplomb – but also the necessary aggression. While Mikel Arteta has a different position, he would sign a Henry-like player in Raphinha.
