Rafinha has failed to make the break into the Barcelona side this season
Wednesday, January 10, 2018
Arsenal have joined the race for Barcelona midfielder Rafinha Alcantara.
The 24-year-old is considering his options during the current transfer window and he could leave if the right offer comes in.
Arsenal, according to Sport, are now also in the running to sign Rafinha after adding him to their shortlist.
The Gunners are expected to sell Francis Coquelin during the current transfer window, meaning they would be in the market for a midfielder.
Manager Arsene Wenger is a long-term admirer of Rafinha and he could be about to finally get his man.
It was only in October last year Rafinha's father said his son had absolutely no interest in leaving the Catalan club.
