“it’s a realistic deal” – Glen Johnson names ideal summer transfer target for Liverpool
Former Liverpool star Glen Johnson strongly believes that Leeds United star Raphinha would be a great fit for the Anfield outfits.
Raphinha is reportedly set to leave the club in the summer after turning down their latest contract offer.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano stated last week that Liverpool are still interested in Raphinha despite signing Luis Diaz in January.
He said on his podcast:
“Liverpool are exploring the possibility of signing Raphinha. If Leeds get relegated, there will be some really interesting clauses. It’s around £25m, so it could be a big opportunity on the market.”
Speaking to BettingOdds.com, Johnson was asked who his ideal summer signing would be for Liverpool, He said:
“I like Raphinha. I think he’s the type of player who would go into that Liverpool mold. It’s a realistic deal as well.
“He’s not going to cost God-knows-whatever that the likes of Haaland are going to cost.
“I think Raphinha’s work ethic, the way he plays football and I just think we’ve seen it work already with Diogo Jota and Luis Díaz. Raphinha fits that mold as well.”
Raphinha has been Leeds United’s top player so far this season, scoring 9 goals and providing 3 assists in 27 Premier League appearances this season.
