Report: German club touted as potential buyer for Leeds 24-year-old

German giants Borussia Dortmund are being linked with Leeds United’s £28,000-a-week star Raphinha. 

Dortmund, who finished third in the Bundesliga this season, are reportedly  in the market to try sign a new attacker in the summer transfer window. 

According to Eurosport, Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi and Lille’s Jonathan Ikone are both on their shortlist. 

The report also states that Dortmund are a potential buyer for Leeds star Raphinha, and they may be interested in his signature. 

With Dortmund touted as potential buyers, it goes to show the kind of impact that Raphinha has had during his first year in English football.

TBR’s View:

Even the most die hard Leeds fan will understand Raphinha may be destined to play at the very, very top level further down his career. 

However, Elland Road is the perfect home for him right now.

He’s been one of the Premier League’s most exciting attackers to watch this season, and there is so much more he could achieve as he develops. 

The left-footed trickster is unplayable for full-backs on his day in the way he dribbles with such close control and has the low centre of gravity to shift any way so effortlessly. 

Leeds fans deserve at least another full season of him to hopefully watch him perform in front of a full crowd.

Plus, there is no reason why the Yorkshire giants can’t compete for the European positions next year based off how they finished this season.
