Arsenal offered Barcelona midfielder Rafinha

Rafinha

Arsenal have been offered the opportunity to sign Brazilian midfielder Rafinha from Barcelona in a deal worth £27m this summer, according to Sky Sports News.

The 24-year-old Brazilian global has three years left on his present deal with the Spanish powerhouse though it seems he's surplus to requirements under new boss Ernesto Valverde.

The report noted how Rafinha has been left out of Barca's pre-season tour of the US while he gets over a knee problem.

He is now in United States of America recovering from his knee injury.

In turn, despite the report adding that president Josep Bartomeu has already insisted that he will not be sold, it appears as though Rafinha is an expendable figure in the squad with coach Ernesto Valverde still waiting for a high-profile arrival this summer.

Sky Sports note that when asked about his future last month, Rafinha responded: "My future is open and God only knows what will happen". "All I can say is that everything is open".

As to Arsenal's possible interest, Alec Shilton of The Sun says manager Arsene Wenger is not "put off" by Rafinha's injury issues.

Rafinha - brother of Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara - is a product of Barca's famous La Masia youth academy and he came through the ranks to break in to the first team set-up in 2014.
