ARSENAL weighing up a move for Bayern Munich defender

Arsenal are weighing up a move for Barcelona midfielder Rafinha, according to Mundo Deportivo. The Gunners are preparing for life without Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez, and have identified the 24-year-old midfielder as someone capable of stepping into their shoes. The playmaker is likely to command a hefty transfer fee, though, and there are concerns over his fitness as he has not played since April because of a knee injury.
