Arsenal set to launch second Raphinha transfer bid

ARSENAL are reportedly preparing a second bid for Raphinha as they look to beat London rivals Chelsea and Tottenham to the Leeds winger.

Mikel Arteta has made landing the forward a priority signing, with the Gunners launching an offer to secure his services earlier this week.

But their approach was swiftly knocked back by the Whites after it fell way under their asking price.

It was claimed on Monday that Arsenal were set to wrap up a transfer for the Brazilian this week, but those claims appear to be wide of the mark.

Leeds are in no rush to sell Raphinha with the 25-year-old tied down at Elland Road until 2024.

According to the Guardian, the Yorkshire outfit will only part ways with the ex-Rennes ace should they receive a fee of at least £65million.
