Arsenal’s first offer to Rafinha was rejected by Leeds United, but Wing preferred to go to Chelsea.
On Tuesday, Metope will complete £34m in exchange for Fabio Vieira and continue the Rafinha transfer.
But Barcelona, Chelsea and Tottenham are also interested in the 25-year-old, so Arsenal face fierce competition.
According to Athletics, Arsenal have made an official offer to Rafinha, but it is far below his reputation, so the offer must be rejected by Leeds.
The report also states that Brazilians support a move to Chelsea if he decides to stay in the Premier League.
Rafinha’s overall advantage is in Barcelona, but despite the fact that they have already agreed personal terms, the Spanish clubs are financially limited and are trying to drop players in the first place.
Rafinha, who joined Rennes’ 17m contract lead in 2020, still has two years left on his current contract.
Leeds are known to be demanding a £50m fee from Brazilian players.
Rafinha was the star of Leeds last season. His 11 goals played a big part in helping the club avoid being demoted from the Premier League.
If Leeds failed to win the championship, the wings would have been available for ონ 30m this summer.
