Premier League leaders Arsenal are eager to bolster their squad in January and may move for ex-Leeds United man Raphinha.
Premier League leaders Arsenal appear destined to miss out on their long-term target Mykhaylo Mudryk.
The Gunners have reportedly made several bids for the Shakhtar Donetsk winger, but he now appears set for a move to Chelsea after opening talks with the Ukrainian club over a fee.
As a result, Arsenal will have to turn their attention elsewhere to strengthen their squad during the January transfer window.
Arsenal have turned to Barcelona’s Brazilian winger Raphinha as they miss Mudryk, according to Sportitalia.
The former Leeds United winger only joined Barcelona in July on a five-year deal but has made just 12 starts in 22 total appearances for the Blaugrana.
The Gunners hope Raphinha would be a suitable candidate for a return to England, given his previous experience in the Premier League.
