There is good news coming for Arsenal. Their target winger, Raphinha, is reportedly willing to move to Arsenal this winter.
Arsenal are known to be hunting for a new winger. They are looking for someone who can strengthen their wing sector after their transfer target, Mykhaylo Mudryk, was hijacked by Chelsea.
Word is circulating that Arsenal are directing their radar to Spain. They plan to recruit Raphinha from Barcelona.
The El Nacional report claims that there is good news for Arsenal. Raphinha is reportedly open to moving to Arsenal.
Ready to Move
The report claims that Raphinha is seriously considering a move to Arsenal this winter.
This is because the winger does not get regular playing hours at Barcelona. He has been sitting on the bench more recently.
That is why Raphinha wanted to move in order to get playing time and Arsenal were considered to be a good option for him.
According to the report, Arsenal have been eyeing Raphinha’s services for a long time.
Mikel Arteta was impressed with the winger’s performance at Leeds United last season. He considered that the Brazilian national team player would be suitable to be part of his attack line.
But last summer they were outmatched by Barcelona. That is why Arteta wants to try once again to recruit the winger.
But it seems that Raphinha’s transfer to Arsenal this winter will not happen.
The Gunners have reportedly reached an agreement to recruit Leandro Trossard from Brighton.
