ARSENAL are lining up an approach for Leeds ace Raphinha.

The Whites are expecting the Gunners’ call but will demand £60million for the Brazilian - who won’t sign a new Elland Road contract.

Tottenham and Barcelona have already made contact but no official bids have gone in.

Chelsea are also keeping tabs.

And Bayern Munich were interested in January.

But the Germans are on the verge of sealing a £35m deal for Liverpool ace Sadio Mane instead.

Former Rennes winger Raphinha, 25, would much prefer a Nou Camp switch and is understood to have agreed personal terms.

But the Catalan giants are keeping cool because of their precarious financial situation.

Raphinha scored 11 Prem goals last season - including on the final day of the season as Leeds stayed up in dramatic fashion.

Gunners technical director Edu is believed to have met with the forward's agent Deco but the nine-cap ace wants Champions League football.

The North Londoners have already signed Porto midfielder Fabio Vieira for £35m.

And they are closing in on a deal for Raphinha’s international team-mate Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City.
