Transfer latest: Leeds eye 19-goal star; Arsenal bid baffles PL rival
To kick off our latest transfer round-up, Leeds United have made Cody Gakpo their top target should Raphinha leave Elland Road this summer. Gakpo scored 19 goals for PSV Eindhoven and will cost £25.9 million, according to Foot Mercato.
But Arsenal are going to have to step up their game if they hope to be the ones to sign Raphinha. Their opening offer for the Brazilian was swiftly rejected. And the Yorkshire Evening Post reports that Leeds were left baffled by the bid from the Gunners.
Arsenal are making more progress in their pursuit of Gabriel Jesus. Journalist Ben Jacobs told The Football Terrace that a fee has been agreed with Manchester City and Jesus is in line to be handed a contract worth £220,000-a-week at the Emirates.
Another Manchester City forward who could leave this summer is Raheem Sterling, with 90min reporting that Tottenham Hotspur want the England international. And Harry Kane is working behind the scenes to try and persuade the 27-year-old to move to North London.
