Brazilian midfielder Rafinha is reportedly happy to be a potential makeweight in any deal that takes Hector Bellerin back to Barcelona.
The midfielder is keen to secure regular football ahead of next summer’s World Cup and is ‘looking forward’ to establishing himself in the Premier League, according to Marca.
Rafinha started only 14 La Liga games last season and has not played for Brazil since late 2015.

Elsewhere, other Spanish reports claim Bellerin’s family have moved to Barcelona ahead of a potential transfer for the right-back.
Nacho Monreal said recently: “He’s an Arsenal player & almost certainly will continue here. The boss has already reiterated that he counts on him.”
