Spanish giants Barcelona could be set to offload as many as 11 players so they can fund new acquisitions, according to the Daily Mirror.
If this is true then there are at least three players that the Mirror claims could be sold that Arsenal are interested in, or have been recently.
Last year we were linked with a move for Rafinha, now, that interest has died somewhat, but you have to think that if he came available that we would at the very least take another look at the 25-year-old, he would certainly be a contender to fill the gap that will be left by Aaron Ramsey.
Then there is Samuel Umtiti.
We have been linked consistently over the last few weeks with the France World cup winner and just two days ago it was being reported that Arsenal has made an attempt to take the 25-year-old on loan.
Finally, there is Ivan Rakitic.
The 31-year-old has apparently rejected both us and Man Utd in favour of a move to Inter Milan, however, the source for that was the Sun citing sources in Italy, so take that with a pinch of salt.
Rakitic is over 30 and everything will depend on the sort of contract he is offered as he comes to the end of his career and there is just as much chance of him joining us as there is of him joining Inter.
What are the chances of any of these three signing for us?
You have to think that there is a good chance if the reports of Barca needing to sell are true, all three have been linked with us so at some point, if the rumours are accurate, we must have been interested, all three certainly are quality and could settle in well at the Emirates.
It is going to be an interesting an interesting summer transfer window that’s for sure.
