Leeds United star Raphinha has long had ambitions of playing for Arsenal and emulating Thierry Henry.
The Gunners are locked in talks with Leeds over a £50m-plus deal for the Brazil international.
And in a past Players’ Tribune entry, Raphinha has confessed hopes of playing for Arsenal: “I’d be watching the Prem with my dad on the free-to-air channels. Henry was flying, man. The runs, the finishes, it was crazy.
“I also remember that the stadiums were always full. The songs, the shouts. The noise. I can’t remember the details, but I was probably sitting in a run-down bar somewhere in Restinga when I made the vow.
“One day I’m going to play there.”
This is the baddest guy around town. Hook me up so that we can share some routine infor in the area.
