Leeds winger Raphinha would be interested in a move to West Ham but he will not engineer a transfer away from Elland Road, according to reports in the English media.
The Hammers are believed to have had a bid rejected for the Brazilian international, and it remains to be seen where the player’s future lies.
Raphinha is reportedly unlikely to sign a new contact and, while his current deal will still have two years left to run at the end of the season, it does put Leeds in a difficult position.
The 25-year-old’s value will start to depreciate over the coming months, and there is interest, not only from West Ham, but from the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea as well.
Whether the Irons will make another attempt to sign Raphinha during the January transfer window, it seems doubtful, but you can’t rule out David Moyes’ side revisiting the situation in the summer.
