Barca star pushing for EPL move

Rafinha open to Barca exit

Barcelona attacker Rafinha has reportedly told the likes of Lionel Messi and Neymar that he would be leaving Camp Nou at the end of the season.

The Brazil international has managed 29 appearances for the Spanish champions this season - most of them coming from the substitutes' bench.

According to The Express, both Arsenal and Liverpool have been put on alert after Rafinha revealed his disappointment over the lack of playing time to first-team duo Messi and Neymar.

The Premier League pair are keeping a close watch on the playmaker, who is capable of playing in different positions having featured in defence, midfield and attack during his time in Catalonia.

Rafinha is currently contracted to Barcelona until the summer of 2020, and it is understood that the La Liga holders would be reluctant to sell unless they receive a transfer package in excess of £25m.

The Brazilian ace has recently earned a regular role at the Catalan outfit with manager Luis Enrique opting to switch to a 3-4-3 formation.
