The winger has over two years left on his current contract but could be set for a summer move

Leeds star Raphinha is holding off talks over a new contract because he is waiting on offers from Europes top teams, GOAL understands.

The Premier League side approached the winger on two occasions in January to discuss extending his stay.

But the 25-year-old did not respond to the Elland Road club and could opt to leave.

Leeds are hopeful of holding on to the Brazil international beyond his current contract, which expires in 2024.

Raphinha wants to explore his options, though, and is looking to hear what other clubs have to offer.

Raphinhas preference is to stay in the Premier League, but he would rather join a team that can regularly compete for silverware.

The countrys top teams are already eyeing his signing in the summer transfer window.

But Leeds are not ready to give up on their hopes of convincing him to sign a new deal as they believe offering him a significant pay rise will be enough to keep him happy.

The former Rennes star has been Leeds top performer this season.

He has scored eight goals in the Premier League – twice as many as next top scorer Daniel James.

He also has two assists to his name from 21 games in the English top-flight.
