Arsenal confirm arrival of hotshot midfielder at the Emirates

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.

Arsenal is set to lose transfer target Rafinha to another club in pursuit of his talent this month – with Inter Milan ready to pounce.

Inter Milan sporting director Piero Ausilio is in Spain to tie up a deal for the midfielder.

The Brazilian has been given permission to exit the Camp Nou this month after failing to win the favor of new boss Ernesto Valverde.

As talkSPORT reported last week, Arsenal has expressed an interest in the 24-year-old after learning he was available on the market.

But, according to Premium Sport, Rafinha is actually close to completing a move to Inter after Ausilio flew into Barcelona on Tuesday.

The sporting director is now holding talks with Barca chiefs and the deal should be sealed up soon.


Inter are set to sign Rafinha on loan for the rest of the season, before signing him permanently in the summer.
