Report: Barca offer star in bid to land Arsenal ace Bellerin

Rob McCarthy

Barcelona are reportedly ready to offer Arsenal midfielder Rafinha in a bid to land full-back Hector Bellerin this summer.

The Spanish giants have made Bellerin one of their top targets this summer and according to Marca, they believe that Rafinha’s desire to leave the Nou Camp could be used as a bargaining chip.

The Brazilian playmaker is looking for more game time and is believed to be an admirer of Arsenal’s style of play, a style he feels would very much suite the way he likes to play.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is looking to revamp his midfield, with the futures of Mesut Ozil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain still unclear at this point in time, and Rafinha would certainly be a welcome addition at The Emirates.

The 24-year-old is valued at around 30million euros by Barca and that could well mean that a straight swap is on the cards, although deals of that nature are notoriously difficult to pull off.
