Arsenal interested in Barcelona midfielder Rafinha .
Arsenal are interested in signing €30m-rated Barcelona midfielder Rafinha Alcantara as manager Arsene Wenger wants to add creativity to the Premier League club’s midfield ahead of the new season, according to a report from Marca (h/t Sport Witness). The 24-year-old made 26 appearances for Barcelona last season but did not get enough game time as he wanted as only started 16 times for the Spanish giants. The Brazilian international is keen on getting first team football every week and Barcelona could use Hector Bellerin as part of a potential deal with the Gunners. Rafinha is reported to fancy a move to the Premier League and with Arsenal interested, that could well be his destination this summer. The midfielder suits the style of play that Wenger adopts at the Emirates and is a technically gifted player. Rafinha managed to get his name on the scoresheet six times last season in the La Liga as the Catalan giants narrowly missed out on the league title to rivals Real Madrid. Rafinha has been somewhat overlooked at Barcelona, much like his brother Thiago was before he secured a move to German giants Bayern Munich, where he is now thriving. And it seems the same may be needed for Rafinha. A move away from the Nou Camp could well bring the best out of the youngster and Arsenal are yet to make a bid.
