Borussia Dortmund fans react to links with Leeds winger Raphinha

Leeds United attacker Raphinha is reportedly being touted as a possible target for German club Borussia Dortmund – and some Dortmund fans on Twitter have given a big thumbs up to the transfer speculation.

Football news outlet Eurosport reports that the Leeds winger is someone who interests the Bundesliga outfit, as they may need to end up finding a replacement for their England international Jadon Sancho this summer.

It is understood that the Brazilian trickster could be explored as an option for Dortmund, along with Lille’s Jonathan Ikone, and Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi is also on their radar.

A selection of Dortmund supporters on social media are convinced the South American forward would bring a lot to their team.
