Barcelona may be somewhat nearer to signing Arsenal left -back Hector Bellerin than it appeared to be just a couple days prior and that is on account of Rafinha Alcantara who wants to leave Camp Nou and could be used as a bargaining advantage.
The Brazilian player, who is looking for more playing time, would be keen on a move to the Premier League and particularly to Arsenal, where he believe he could fit in well and develop as a player.
The profound respect is mutual, as the North-London side are also keen on the 24-year-old as a part of arrangements to fortify their midfield and his style of play is the kind that Arsene Wenger might want to have on his side.
It would suit Barcelona, as their essential target is to sign a right-back and Bellerin remains their most favorite choice, yet he would cost an enormous fee if bought directly without any player inclusion, that’s if Arsenal would even sell him.
However, by sweetening the negotiation with the inclusion of Rafinha, who Barca valued at 30 million euros, they could entice the Gunners into offering Bellerin and at a moderate price. On the question whether Bellerin would be on board, he has kept out of the transfer issue up until this point.
