Brazil winger Raphinha has been one of the best players at Leeds United, who were promoted to the Premier League last summer after emerging the English Championship winners at the end of last season.
Raphinha has become a key player for Leeds United in recent weeks after a slow start to life at Elland Road upon his big money transfer from Rennes in the French top flight. The Brazil winger is being watched by a lot of the big clubs at home and abroad on the back of his impressive form for Leeds United. The Brazil player produced a man-of-the-match display in the last league game for Leeds United, a 2-0 home victory over Crystal Palace. The result ensured that Leeds United moved above Arsenal into the top half of the table.
Leeds United had started the game in 11th spot and they knew that a win over the visitors would take them above the Gunners into the top half of the table. Stuart Dallas provided the assist for Jack Harrison to give Leeds United a first half lead via a deflected effort. Leeds United were clearly the better team and they could have easily scored more than two goals against a poor Crystal Palace side. Leeds United made sure of the points with the second goal courtesy leading goalscorer Patrick Bamford after good work from the impressive Brazil attacker Raphinha. Raphinha was a thorn in the flesh of the Crystal Palace as he bamboozled themwith his skills and quality on the ball.
Raphinha signed for Leeds United at the start of the season and he has been a revelation for the club this season. He has four goals and four assists in the league this term. Leeds United paid the initial fee of £17m plus add-ons to sign him from Rennes. He's already attracting the interest of Liverpool manager JurgenKlopp according to France Football.
