Arsenal and Spurs battle to sign £40m rated South American star




Premier League rivals Arsenal, and Tottenham Hotspur are both keen on signing Brazilian attacker Rafinha, according to reports from Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo.

The Gunners have made an impact in the summer window so far with the signings of Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon and Sead Kolasinac on a free transfer, while their North London neighbors Tottenham Hotspur have been shockingly very quiet, having not signed a single player this summer transfer window.

Nonetheless, both City rival clubs are expected to step up their efforts in the coming days, and according to reports from Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, the Gunners and Spurs are currently in the hunt to sign the Brazil and Barcelona attacker Rafinha.

The Brazilian is a very talented young player, but he failed to secure regular playing time for the La Liga giant last term and is now thought to be open to leaving the Catalan club in search of regular playing time on the pitch.

Premier League clubs Arsenal and Spurs have allegedly inquired about Rafinha’s availability, while Merseysider’s Liverpool are also believed to be interested, reportedly ready to offer between £26.8m and £35.8m to seal a deal this summer transfer window.

The Brazilian has not traveled on Barca’s pre-season training tour of the United States in order to focus on his recovery work.
