Leeds United reportedly agree a £20m deal to sign Rennes winger Raphinha on transfer deadline day, taking their overall summer spending to around £100m.

Leeds United have reportedly agreed a deal to sign Rennes winger Raphinha on deadline day.

The 23-year-old shone for Rennes in Ligue 1 last season, scoring five goals and creating three more in 22 appearances before the campaign was curtailed due to coronavirus.

Raphinha has also registered two assists already this term, and Sky Sports News reports that Leeds have now reached an agreement for the forward.

The Championship winners are expected to pay around £20m for the Brazilian's signature, taking their summer spending to around £100m since earning promotion back to the Premier League.

Marcelo Bielsa's side have broken their transfer record by bringing in Rodrigo Moreno for £27m, in addition to signing the likes of Robin Koch and Diego Llorente.

Leeds have won seven points from their opening four Premier League games this season, most recently holding Manchester City to a draw on Saturday.
