Meanwhile, David Ornstein of The Athletic claims Mikel Arteta is a big fan of Rafinha, but the Gunners face stiff competition for Brazil.

“Arsenal have had an initial offer rejected by Leeds United, falling far below their valuation,” Ornstein told HatersTV.

‘But Arsenal’s interest remains strong, and he is a player Mikel Arteta would like to sign.

‘This could be another one that takes a lot of time and will not be easy, especially because of competition from the likes of Tottenham and Chelsea.

‘His long-standing desire, or the most likely destination, of the team he was most associated with, was Barcelona. If they can get their act together financially then they might have money to make a deal that was taken off the leads and it seems to buff the buffs from their point of view.’
