Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Liverpool are prepared to approach Barcelona with a big money offer for their midfielder Rafinha, who has also attracted the attention of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspurs.
The Brazilian is currently recuperating from a knee injury, but that hasn’s stopped several clubs from trying to acquire the 24-year-old’s signature this summer.
Jurgen Klopp has been an admirer of the player for a long while and Liverpool have been keeping close watch on his recovery with an intention of offering for him later before the transfer window closes.
And according to Spanish daily Mundo Deportivo, the Merseyside giants are prepared to submit an offer worth €30m to €40m in the summer to bring him down to England in the coming month.
He has a €75m release clause in his contract but Barcelona are expected to be more than happy to beat down the price as he has only been a bit part player for the club.
However, the Reds could face competition for his signature as their Premier League rivals Arsenal and Tottenham are also interested in the 24-year-old.
And Serie A giants Inter Milan and AC Milan are also considering making an offer for the player this summer.
A product of the Barcelona academy, Rafinha is well aware that he could have to leave the club this summer to play regular football next season.
