Reports have emerged from claiming Barcelona are ready to offer £20million plus Rafinha for Hector Bellerin.
Bellerin have been heavily linked with a move to the Nou Camp with a report suggesting he is been lined up as a long term replacement for Dani Alves who left last summer to Juventus.
According to MARCA, the versatile 24-year-old is willing to leave the Nou Camp for the Emirates.
Having signed a six-year deal last year, Bellerin is likely to command a hefty fee and Barca will try to tempt Arsenal by including Rafinha in the package.
The midfielder, 24, is looking to leave Barcelona for regular first-team football, although he has been out since an April knee operation and could miss the start of the new season.
Rafinha’s prospects would be boosted by a move to north London with the player determined to be in Brazil’s squad for the World Cup in Russia.
He can play at right wing-back, a position Bellerin operated towards the end of last season after Arsene Wenger shifted to a 3-5-2 system.
