The two clubs got in touch on Tuesday night and Chelsea quickly agreed to increase the full asking price

Arsenal have been chasing the underdog winger for some time and Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel was determined not to lose to his London rivals.

Barcelona, ​​Tottenham and Newcastle have also been linked.

Raphina, 25, told Elland Road chiefs that he wants to leave and would prefer to join Barca.

But the Spanish giants are struggling financially, paving the way for a move for Chelsea.

The deal is expected to be announced within the next 48 hours.

Chelsea are determined to get active in the transfer market following American Boehly’s £4.25billion takeover of the club.

So far this summer they have only dropped players, with defenders Antonio Rüdiger and Andreas Christensen leaving on free transfers.
