Well, Arsenal’s signing of Raphinha is starting to look a little unlikely.

The Gunners have already bid around £30m for the Leeds United winger and are planning an improved bid of around £50m for the attacker, according to The Daily Mail.

Arsenal will need another winger this summer amid speculation Nicolas Pepe could, and likely will, leave the Emirates Stadium.

Given his qualities, Raphinha would be a fantastic replacement for the £72m flop.

However, it was reported by the athlete that Chelsea were now on the verge of signing the Leeds player in a £55m deal.

And at 3:49am this morning, reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano tweeted that Arsenal were “now waiting” to see how the Blues fare in their bid to sign the Brazil international as the north Londoners “were trying until yesterday ” have to get him.

The 25-year-old, a £17 million The Whites’ signing two years ago is one hell of a player but Mikel Arteta and Edu may have to admit defeat.

For now, it looks like Chelsea are going to win the race and sooner or later the Arsenal duo may have to focus on other goals.

Pepe staying in North London seems relatively impossible given how poor he was last semester.

But the Gunners are in dire need of a quality replacement and while it may not be Raphinha, signing another winger is imperative.

That being said, there have already been a number of twists and turns in relation to Raphinha this summer as he looks set to eventually join Barcelona.

Maybe, just maybe, Arsenal’s “waiting” – according to Romano – could still do something.
