Anelectrophile(literally electron lover) is a reagent attracted to electrons.Electrophilesare positively charged or neutral species having vacant orbitals that are attracted to an electron rich centre.

Electrophiles are electron deficient species (neutral or cationic). They attack electron rich C-atom.
