Leeds reportedly interested in Brazilian winger Raphael Martinho

Another Brazilian could be on his way to Leeds United.

Leeds United are reportedly interested in signing Catania midfielder Raphael Martinho.

Italian website TMW reports that Neil Redfearn’s side like the 26-year-old Brazilian and could consider a move as they seek additions for the second half of their Championship campaign.

Martinho is currently co-owned by Catania and Hellas Verona so any deal is unlikely to be simple, but the report claims the idea of a potential move to Elland Road could develop in the coming weeks.

Martinho is a left-winger who can also operate as a left-sided midfielder and a left-back, and his versatility would come in very handy for a Leeds side looking to fight their way back up the table.

He has scored five goals and provided five assists for Catania and netted 12 goals and provided six assists in 54 games for Verona.
