According to Sport, Tottenham Hotspur are considering a move for Barcelona midfielder Rafinha in this summer’s transfer window.
The 25-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Inter Milan, and it is understood that the Italian giants have the option to make the deal permanent this summer.
Whilst Inter were pleased with Rafinha’s performances last term, it is thought that the Serie A side are shying away from a potential £31m move.
West Ham United have recently been credited with an interest in the midfielder, who is believed to be open to a move to the Premier League.

However, according to Sport, Tottenham are also considering a move.
Indeed, head coach Mauricio Pochettino is believed to be a keen admirer of the two-time Brazil international, whose future is far from secure.
The Tottenham fans have been reacting to the transfer speculation, and it seems that the bulk would welcome the playmaker to the new White Hart Lane ahead of the new campaign.

Oh that could be really good. Only not sure if he fits England with his playing style. Would cost 35 mil which Inter could not pay and Barca are willing to sell.

Yeah, very good player. Injuries halted his progress last season and the one before, but he’s come back very very strongly since the January window and his move to Inter. Helped them crack into top 4 when Icardi’s form took a tumble.
