Arsenal to join three clubs in chase for £26m rated Brazilian

Barcelona midfielder Rafinha is interesting both Arsenal and Liverpool, according to Sport.

The 24-year-old will be available for €30million (£26m) the Spanish newspaper reports with Juventus and Roma also pursuing the player.

Currently the Brazilian international has a knee injury which will keep him out of action until August. This could prevent any move from happening, especially with Barca’s high asking price.

The Catalan club are wary of letting their players leave for low prices after seeing Sandro Ramirez flourish at Malaga after departing on a free transfer last summer.

Rafinha had a decent season for Barcelona before missing the last two months of the campaign with injury. He played 28 times in all competitions, scoring seven times and five assists.

Manager Luis Enrique played him either as a holding midfielder or as a right winger, and his flexibility is something which will no doubt come in useful for a club prepared to meet Barca’s valuation this summer.
