Liverpool fans rave about Leeds star after sparkling Saturday display, despite defeat to West Ham at ER

Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to urge their club to sign Leeds star Raphinha, after another sparkling display for Marcelo Bielsa’s side.

Raphinha, 24, netted his third goal in five Premier League games. A wonderful first-time finish into the bottom corner, putting Leeds 1-0 up.

But the Brazilian, who has been called-up to the latest round of fixtures and could win his first cap, was unable to prevent Leeds suffering defeat.

The Hammers are in excellent form. They came roaring back, scoring through a Junior Firpo own goal and an injury-time Michail Antonio effort.

Raphinha is on his way back from a knock and was removed on 69 minutes. The winger complaining to Leeds management that he was struggling.

What are Liverpool fans saying about Leeds star Raphinha?

Harvey Elliot has suffered an injury and will be unable to replace Mo Salah and Sadio Mane, who will jet off in January to play for Egypt and Senegal.

Xherdan Shaqiri has joined Lyon. So, Liverpool will surely have to enter the market in the summer for a new winger – and Raphinha might be ideal.

The Independent claimed earlier this month that Raphinha has been on Liverpool’s radar since 2016 – and Jurgen Klopp is still keeping tabs.

Liverpool fans discussed £17million (BBC) Leeds signing Raphinha after his goal on Saturday – and many have ordered their club to sign him in January.
