The north London club were refused an initial offer by Leeds United earlier this week as it was well below Los Blancos’ asking price.

Raphinha has also attracted interest from Chelsea, Tottenham and Barcelona after two impressive seasons at Elland Road.

Now, however, according to The Athletic, the Gunners are set to step up their efforts to sign the Brazilian, as they look to complete the deal next week.

It is also understood negotiations between the north London club and Raphinha’s representatives are planned, with the 25-year-old ‘open’ to the move and the Gunners improving their proposal.

talkSPORT transfer insider Alex Crook has also given an update on the situation, saying Arsenal are ready to make another offer already.

And one of Raphinha’s other potential suitors is also struggling to sign him.


Raphinha has scored 11 Premier League goals this season and could be the attacking boost Arsenal need

Speaking during the Saturday session, Crook said: “[Leeds are] looking for £60m for Raphinha.

“We learned for about an hour that Arsenal are preparing a second offer for him.

“At the moment they are the first because Barcelona, ​​where everyone thought he was going, doesn’t have the financial resources at the moment to go ahead.

“So if Raphinha also moves to North London [as other target Gabriel Jesus]it’s been a brilliant summer for Arsenal.
