Barcelona warned of Arsenal threat despite agreeing Raphinha terms

Barcelona have agreed a five-year contract with Leeds United winger Raphinha.

However, Leeds' asking price is proving too rich for the Catalans.

Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano reports: "Raphinha deal. Barcelona have full agreement with his agent Deco since February on a five year deal but Leeds want €55m, no plan to change their price tag.

"Barca need to be fast as Premier League clubs are back in the race, including Arsenal - but no bid submitted yet."

Both Arsenal and Tottenham have been linked with a move for the forward.

However, Spurs are only thought to be interested if they cannot complete a deal for Everton man Richarlison.
