Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool are all interested in signing Barcelona playmaker Rafinha, claim reports in Spain.
Rafinha is expected to leave the Camp Nou this summer after failing to force his way into Barca’s starting line up due to constant injuries. Ernesto Valverde doesn’t see the Brazilian as part of his plans and he wants to sell him to raise money to pursue his targets.
Last week, Sky Sports claimed Rafinha has been offered to Arsenal as the Spanish giants attempt to hasten his exit but reports in Spain via the Daily Cannon are claiming it is Arsenal who are circling over Rafinha.
This is not the first time the midfielder is being linked with Arsenal and Gooners can recall that the Spanish media have continuously done this over the years.
This time around they claim Tottenham and Liverpool are also keen on the player who is valued in excess of £27m by his club.
Mundo Deportivo say Liverpool are prepared to spend between £25m and £35m for the midfielder while Arsenal have enquired about him as a replacement for Chamberlain.
You don’t need anyone to tell you the Spanish media are trying to help Barcelona sell the out of favor midfielder with these claims as Rafinha and Chamberlain don’t even play in the same position and how Wenger is looking at him to replace the Ox is beyond me.
Rafinha featured 29 times for Barcelona in the last two years because of injuries and no club would want to sign such player for the fee that’s being quoted, perhaps the reason Barcelona are struggling to find a buyer.
