Arsenal are reportedly in talks to sign Leeds United forward Raphinha and Jamie O’Hara claims the ex-Spurs midfielder could ‘delete Twitter’ after deals for Fabio Vieira and Gabriel Jesus if they see the talent got from Leeds.
Raphinha, 25, is a target for Barcelona. But Xavi’s side are struggling to find the finances to sign the Brazil international. Barcelona are prioritizing a move for Robert Lewandowski this summer.
Tottenham are also reportedly in talks with the player’s agent, while a meeting between Edu and Raphinha’s representatives – Portuguese legend Deco – has been set for this week. Leeds want around £55m.
Tottenham fan and ex-Spurs midfielder O’Hara discusses Arsenal’s work so far in the window and says he’s impressed with Jesus’ alleged impending signing. He says he could ‘delete Twitter’ if Arsenal get Raphinha.
Gabriel Jesus would be a great signing, I’ve always been impressed with him.” O’Hara told TalkSPORT on Monday morning at 9.55 a.m. He continued, “And if they get Raphinha too, then maybe I’ll delete Twitter.”

Arsenal are getting closer to a brilliant window at this early stage. They needed a midfielder, they signed Vieira. Marquinihos is an exciting talent and they desperately needed a striker – Jesus is a top addition.
What else do the Gunners need? A holding midfielder, coverage at full-back and a winger. Nicolas Pepe could leave and competition for Bukayo Saka is a necessity. £63,500 per week (Spotrac) Raphinha would be a stunning move.
