Barcelona midfielder Rafinha is considering an offer to join Arsenal, according to reports in Brazil.

The 24-year-old is reportedly unhappy with his lack of playing time at Camp Nou and is looking to move clubs this summer.

And ESPN Brazil now claim that the midfielder has received a proposal from Arsene Wenger’s side.

Earlier this week, Marca claimed that Rafinha is interested in joining Arsenal and believes the club would be the perfect place for him to develop.

The Brazilian is reportedly valued at €30 million (£26.4m) but Barcelona are willing to use the player in their bid to sign Hector Bellerin.

Rafinha only started 16 games in all competitions last term and is likely to miss the opening of the new season due to a knee injury.

The Brazilian, whose brother Thiago is currently at Bayern Munich, would offer Wenger versatility as he is capable of playing in central midfield as well as at right-back.
