Leeds star Raphinha has reportedly caught the eye of European giants AC Milan. However, the Italian side only value the Brazilian international at just €30m (£25m).

According to Pianeta Milan, the Serie A titans are keen on the Premier League attacker. With the Rossoneri eager to improve the quality of their wide options, with Raphinha on Milan’s radar heading into 2022.

The Leeds star has been in brilliant form this season despite the Yorkshire side’s poor results in the league. With Raphinha establishing himself with the Brazilian national team and the attacker scoring five goals in the English top-flight.

Indeed, it makes sense why his form is attracting interest from big clubs around Europe. However, Milan’s £25m valuation of Raphinha is nothing short of laughable given both the fee Leeds originally paid for the attacker and how good the winger has been this season.

As reported by BBC Sport, Leeds paid a fee of £17m to sign Raphinha from Stade Rennais in 2020. And whilst it is highly likely the Whites would be able to make a profit on the attacker, £25m is simply too low a fee for the forward.

With other clubs likely watching Raphinha, there is a strong chance that Leeds could receive bids for the South American in the summer transfer window. But, offers of £25m would not even be regarded given how good the attacker has been this season.

The draw of playing for Milan could be a tempting one for Raphinha. After all, the Italian side are in the UEFA Champions League this season and are set to challenge for the Serie A title this year.

But, if Milan believe that Raphinha is worth just £25m, then any interest in the Leeds star will quickly fade away given how low their valuation of the Premier League attacker is given his current form.
