Leeds winger Raphinha won’t be sold for less than €60m (£50.6m) were a club like Liverpool to come calling, according to Brazilian agent Eduardo Uram.
The 24-year-old has had a very good start to the season, scoring three goals in seven appearances in the Premier League, and Uram believes his price would be dependent on the level of interest being shown in him:
“What will determine the price is the level of the club that signs him. If it’s Manchester United, City, Liverpool, Chelsea, the price could reach around €60m. What determines the price of a player is the market he hits.”
Uram doesn’t represent Raphinha but he was following on from comments made by Deco. The former Chelsea star is the player’s agent and he claimed that the winger is worth more than his current valuation on Transfermarkt, which currently stands at £28.8m.
It remains to be seen whether Liverpool will make a move for Raphinha in a future transfer window. Deco has already confirmed that the Reds did enquire about the Brazilian international over the summer but no formal bid was made.
Considering Raphinha’s great form, scouts from the Merseyside club will undoubtedly be keeping a close eye on his progress.
