Barcelona Looking To Sell Brazilian Enforcer: 3 PL Clubs Including West Ham United That Should Sign Him

Barcelona are looking in tremendous form so far this term and are on the prowl to bring back their last glory after their dismal show in the last term. They have looked like a formidable unit so far and are expecting to keep their form intact in the near future as well.

Their new manager, Ernesto Valverde, seems to have made his mind up regarding which players he wants to feature in his side for the rest of the season. The others, who are presently nothing more than outcasts at the Catalan club, might be offloaded in the next transfer window. One such player is the Brazilian midfielder Rafinha and there is a chance that he might head out of Nou Camp.

The Brazilian has never been able to establish himself as a regular starter in the Barcelona lineup since his arrival in the senior side in 2013 and has been restricted to more of a bits and pieces role so far. This seems to have fuelled his frustration and now seems interested in joining a new club to revive his career.

Reportedly, the Brazilian ace has been eyed by a number of clubs in the Premier League, who might offer him a regular place in the starting lineup in the near future. Three such clubs where the 24-year-old midfielder in January are-


The North London club have shown genuine interest in bagging some top class players and might make a move for Rafinha in the next transfer window. The Gunners have started this season on a mixed note and are looking for reinforcements to strengthen their side. Given the midfield crisis they are currently facing, the Brazilian enforcer can be a good option for them.

West Ham United

Another club from London are also facing some serious concerns in stabilising their midfield is West Ham. They have struggled since the departure of their talismanic Frenchman Dimitri Payet in the last term.

The 24-year-old midfielder from Nou Camp can be a good addition to their side given the kind of experience he has on his side while playing for one of the best clubs in Europe. The Hammers already added a number of top class players in the summer transfer window and they might do the same in January as well.

Manchester United

As far as the Red Devils are concerned, the Brazilian might be the perfect partner in the heart of the midfield for their Serbian enforcer Nemanja Matic and could be a decent backup for the likes of Pogba, adding some creativity to the side.
