Tottenham are keen to sign Raphinha and Richarlison as the north Londoners look to strengthen their forward options this summer.
Antonio Conte is targeting deals for the Brazilian duo as he continues his rebuild at Spurs, with additional firepower a focus as the club prepare to return to the Champions League this season.
Raphinha has been linked with several leading sides and has expressed a desire to leave Leeds, with Arsenal having seen an opening offer rejected for the 25-year-old.
Barcelona and Chelsea are also reportedly interested with the former the winger’s favoured destination, though the Spanish side’s financial issues have prevented them from launching a concrete move.
Leeds are understood to want a fee in the region of £60m for Raphinha, who finished as the club’s leading goalscorer with 11 league goals last season.
The Daily Mail are reporting that Richarlison is also on Conte’s wish-list with Everton valuing the Brazil international at around £50m.
Given the significant fees attached to both players, Spurs may have to choose to pursue just one of the duo. Conte has already moved to strengthen his squad with the free transfer additions of Fraser Forster and Ivan Perisic, whilst Yves Bissouma has arrived from Brighton for a fee of around £25m.
Spurs have ended their interest in signing Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City, with Arsenal in advanced negotiations to sign the 25-year-old.
