Liverpool January transfer target has been cautioned about making the move to Anfield.
Liverpool have their eyes on Leeds United forward Raphinha for the upcoming transfer window. But the Brazilian has been warned about the move being a nightmare despite it being a “massive draw for him”.
Raphinha has been one of the standout players for Leeds, being one of the Premier League’s most feared wingers. He may not have matched his performance with goals like Salah or Mane.
but, many will argue that he is just as important to Leeds as they are to Liverpool.
The 24-year-old has revealed his desire to play in the UEFA Champions League and that looks possible with Liverpool, as Leeds United are far from a Champions League place in the Premier League.
During the international break, the Brazil international said: “I am very happy at Leeds and hopefully we can play the Champions League.”
The reds have been strongly linked with Raphinpha more than most clubs and his ambition looks most likely with a transfer.
However, speaking to online outlet Football Insider, former Premier League striker Kevin Campbell has warned Raphinha that an Anfield move may end up becoming a nightmare.
Campbell admitted joining Liverpool would be a “massive draw” for Raphinha. However, he stressed simply attaining regular starts with Mane, Salah, Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota already on the books may be beyond him.
” I’m sure he won’t want to go anywhere as an impact sub,” said Campbell.
“Liverpool is a massive draw for him, of course it is. But, he is playing every week at Leeds. That is always the problem when you are a club like a Liverpool.
“It’s hard to keep all of these players happy if they are not playing regularly. They’ve got four players at the top end of the pitch now. They are all top-quality as well.
“Where does Raphinha fit in? It is a tough one. Klopp wants to have a strong squad and Raphinha would certainly strengthen it. I just struggle to see where he fits in.”
