Gunners linked with Raphinha again

Arsenal are once again being linked with a move for Brazilian winger Raphinha.

They attempted to sign him last summer when he was still with Leeds United, but were then out-bi by Chelsea before he finally joined Barcelona.

However, the 26 year old has struggled in his first-season in Spain, although he has been more of a regular recently.

Although he is under contract until 2027, his stay in Catalonia could be a short one because the club are under substantial pressure from La Liga to make player sales otherwise they will not be allowed to buy anybody in the summer transfer window.

The Gunners continue to regard a winger as a priority, and they remain admirers of Raphinha, but the £62 million that Barcelona are reported to be wanting for him may be a deterrent, and at the top end of what they are prepared to pay.
