Arsenal target set for Premier League move

Arsenal target, Rafinha Alcantara will be on the move to the Premier League this summer reports, Spanish outlet, Sin Concesiones.

The younger brother of Thiago Alcantara came through the ranks at Barcelona and he has remained on their books but he has struggled for playing time recently and he has spent the last few seasons out on loan.

He is now into the final year of his current deal and the report claims that the Catalans want to cash in on him instead of letting him leave the club for free in the summer.

He has interest from the Premier League from Arsenal and Leeds United according to Sun Sports, and the report adds that he will be available for 14 million euros.

Arsenal has had a busy summer transfer window with the arrivals of Dani Ceballos, Willian and Gabriel Magalhaes. However, they are not done yet and one position that they would like to strengthen is their midfield.

They have been linked with top players like Houssem Aouar and Thomas Partey, but Rafinha might get the job done for less money than those two will command.

Arsenal may have overspent their summer budget already, but they can still raise more money from the sale of some of their top players.

        No update yet… Still as it was few days ago.
        Like I said before, Convincing Aouar won’t be an issue anymore, he’s interested in coming to us.
        The issue is agreeing a fee with Lyon for him.
        Lyon are hoping teams like City and PSG would bid for him but we’re the only ones really serious about getting and convincing Aouar.
        He’s very important to Arteta for now and long term.
        Like Arteta said today, our squad is still not balanced, he knows this and has said we’re definitely bringing players in while selling.
        Chances of getting Aouar are very high right now.
        If City don’t bid for him, we’ll get him.

        Arsenal getting rid of players is not just about making money alone. It’s also about reducing the squad’s wage bill.
        We have 35 players on high wages
        with half doing next to nothing. Official team draft stands at 25 man and we have 35.
        Napoli and City are yet to agree a fee for Koulibaly, so it’s delaying Sokratis’s departure.
        Also like I’ve said before, Arteta’s number striker target if we sell Lacazette remains Odsonne Edouard.

        Partey is still a top target too, we have players we’re trying to bring in. We just need to free up the wage bill and raise some money.

        We should know more about Aouar next week

      I don’t even bother reading the “Arsenal target” articles anymore. I just scroll straight down to the comments hoping to read something actually worthwhile.
