Barca try another tactic in their attempts to lower Arsenal ace’s price


Barcelona could attempt to use one of three different players in their attempts to sign Hector Bellerin from Arsenal, according to Mundo Deportivo.

The Catalan newspaper reports that Barca will consider using midfielders Rafinha, Denis Suarez and Arda Turan in their bid for the right back this summer. They are aware that any deal will need to be worth above €40million andthey will make attempts to lower the fee by adding in players to the deal.

Arda and Rafinha have both been linked with moves to the Emirates already this summer. Turkish media had claimed that Arda had agreed a switch before reports from Spain quashed those rumours.

Rafinha meanwhile was mentioned as a possible signing for the Gunners by another Catalan newspaper Sport, although they felt that Barca’s €30m valuation would put off any potential suitors.

Suarez would likely be the least attractive proposition for Arsenal. The 23 year old returned to the Camp Nou after Barcelona triggered a buyback clause in his contract with Villarreal. He made 36 appearances under manager Luis Enrique last season, scoring three goals and providing five assists.
