Barcelona are looking to offload out of favor midfielder Rafinha and have offered him to Arsenal, according to reports.
Reports in Spain recently linked Rafinha with a move to Arsenal, claiming Wenger is keen on the Brazilian but it has emerged that it is Barcelona who are looking to get rid of him.
According to Sky Sports via the Express, Barcelona have offered Arsenal the chance to sign Rafinha this summer.
The report claims Barcelona are willing to accept a £27m bid for the midfielder who isn’t part of Ernesto Valverde plans.
Arsenal had tried to sign Rafinha sometime in the past but that interest must have waned after the midfielder’s injury struggles in recent seasons.
The Gunners have its own injury worries to address and signing a player like Rafinha who has struggled to stay fit in the last two seasons won’t make any sense.
Yes, he is talented but that doesn’t mean Arsenal should jump at the chance of signing him. Just look at our own talented Wilshere on the verge of an exit because he has been struggling with injuries too, so why should we sign Rafinha.
Barcelona’s decision to offer around means they are struggling to receive offers for the 24 year old. Arsenal may well want to sign a new centre midfielder but would be better off staying away from Rafinha.
