Breaking News! Contract Signed, Arsenal Announces New Signing

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.

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

The Spanish publication reports Barca are looking to use the Brazil international in a swap deal which would involve Hector Bellerin moving to Camp Nou, and it seems the midfielder is intent on the move.

Whether Arsenal would consider dealing with Bellerin in exchange for Rafinha is yet to be seen. Barcelona obviously does not have enough financial power to buy Bellerin with a straight cash offer so they will want to add the Brazillian to any offer they make.

The player is valued at €30million, as per Marca, and it looks like the Catalan club would put in additional fund in a bid to sign Bellerin.

A report in Catalan publication Sport suggests that the Arsenal full-back recently acquired a property in Barcelona, adding that the right back is hoping Barca would come forward with an offer in July after he comes back from the European Under 21 Champions with Spain.
