Barcelona midfielder Rafinha is “interested” in a move to the Premier League, and in particular Arsenal, according to Marca.

The Spanish newspaper reports Barca are looking to use the Brazilian international in a part-exchange deal which would see Hector Bellerin go the other way, and it seems the midfielder would be keen on the move.

Whether Arsenal would consider selling Bellerin in exchange for Rafinha is another question entirely. Barcelona clearly can’t afford to buy Bellerin with a straight cash offer so they will look to add in the Brazilian as part of any bid they make.

They value the player at €30million, according to Marca, and it seems the Catalan club would then add money on top of that in a bid to sign Bellerin.

A report in Catalan publication Sport suggests that the Arsenal full back has recently bought a property in Barcelona, adding that the right back is hoping an approach from Barca will be made in July after he returns from the European Under 21 Championships with Spain.
