According to Italian journalist Gianluigi Longari, Chelsea are interested in signing Leeds United winger Raphinha next summer.

The Brazilian winger is an international teammate of Chelsea centre-back Thiago Silva and has impressed since joining Marcelo Bielsa’s side.

According to the report, Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia is working hard to sign the Brazilian winger next summer but is facing competition from other top European clubs.

Premier League rivals Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing the Leeds United winger.

The Blues are unlikely to sign Raphinha in January due to the wealth of attacking options at Thomas Tuchel’s disposal.
