Former Liverpool full-back Jose Enrique has urged his old club to make an audacious attempt to sign Leeds United winger Raphinha.
Despite being on the verge of losing Kalvin Phillips to Manchester City, Jesse Marsch must also prepare to part ways with wide-attacker Raphinha, who is rumoured to be wanted by several clubs, including Premier League duo Arsenal and Spurs.
Arsenal and Tottenham are both still working on Raphinha. Barcelona, no fresh bid as of now. No one reached an agreement with Leeds yet, asking £65m fee, stronger after Kalvin deal. ??? #LUFC
Next week can be crucial. Chelsea also called Leeds, but Sterling is top priority.

Although it appears to be just a matter of time before the Brazilian attacker departs Elland Road, his destination is not yet known and Enrique thinks Liverpool should capitalise on the uncertainty.
He will be our perfect signing for this season and we don’t need anyone else if we sign him https://t.co/GHJO1ZJFRf
