Raphina's agent is ex-Chelsea man Deco who Graeme Souness sold before he became a star
Arsenal are keen to sit down with Raphinha's representatives as they line up an improved offer for the in-demand Leeds United forward.With a number of major European clubs keeping tabs on the 25-year-old, the Gunners are keen to press ahead with their pursuit after having their opening bid for the player knocked back last week.Raphinha's agent happens to be former Portugal midfielder Deco, a man who spent his prime years at Barcelona and Chelsea - two clubs who are also in the race to sign his client, and the duo were recently spotted at a party together in Spain.READ MORE: Arsenal target Raphinha jets to Spain to meet agent Deco and party with stunning partnerThe two-time Champions League winner, who also finished runner-up in the 2004 Ballon d'Or, was one of Europe's most coveted midfielders for the best part of a decade - but his talent was more obvious to some than others.In Portugal, Brazilian-born Deco is best remembered for the six seasons he spent at Porto, but his first experience of the Primeira Liga was with arch-rivals Benfica - who were managed by Graeme Souness at the time.Where will Raphinha be playing football next season?

Arsenal to 'step up' Raphinha chase next week after falling short with opening offer
