'Liverpool like him' - Agent confirms transfer interest

The agent of Leeds United forward Raphinha has claimed that Liverpool do hold an interest in the player

The Reds were extensively linked with the Brazilian throughout the summer transfer window, as were arch rivals Manchester United.

The 24-year-old has been a star player for Marcelo Bielsa’s side since his arrival, so much so that it has seen him linked with a move to Anfield.

His agent, former Barcelona and Chelsea star Deco, has claimed that the Reds did indeed make an enquiry about Raphinha.

However, Deco went on to say that no official approaches were made but hinted that a future transfer could be on the cards.

"Raphinha became an important player in the Premier League, the club knows he has grown and things will happen naturally,” Deco is quoted telling Globo Esporte.

"He is young, he has many challenges ahead, there are certainly several clubs that like him, and Liverpool do like him, there were approaches, but nothing official.

"Leeds wanted to keep him for another season."
