Although the next transfer doesn`t open until 1 January 2018, it doesn`t stop the media offering its usual amount, although slightly reduced, transfer speculation.
Today, lurking in the pages of the news source, 101 Great Goals, which has picked up on something being reported by the Spanish news source Mundo Deportivo, is the inference that one of the Barcelona squad is set to leave the Camp Nou, possibly in January.
According to our source, Rafinha, who has only had a peripheral role this season, could be heading to the English Premier League.
Arsenal are the club said to be interested in the 24-year-old and the inference is also given by our referenced source that the midfielder is interested in pursuing the next stage of his career in England.
At 24-years-of-age it can be argued that Rafinha needs to be playing first-team football on a regular basis, could a move to the North London based club managed by Arsene Wenger be the perfect opportunity for Rafinha to achieve this goal?
