The Brazilian joined Marcelo Bielsa’s side in the summer of 2020 as a surprise recruit but has since become one of the manager’s key players in the Premier League.

He is the club’s top scorer in the top-flight this season, while also impressing on the international stage with his country, and the player has been linked with interest from Jurgen Klopp’s side, along with Chelsea.

Reds legend John is of the view that the wid mean would suit his former club’s style of play, considering his dynamism on the field more, than any other possible suitors.

He acknowledged that Leeds United will want their key player to remain at Elland Road but thinks he could depart if they receive a hefty fee.

“If teams like Leeds have a superstar player, as Leeds do with Raphinha, then it’s easy to see them moving on”, he told Bonus Code Bets.

“I could see Raphinha playing for Liverpool more so than any other team because of his dynamism.

“Manchester City would look for a more technical player, but because of the way Liverpool play it will suit him.

“Leeds fans would want him to stay, but if a big offer came in, he would leave.”
