Tottenham fans split on Rafinha deal

According to FC Inter News, Tottenham Hotspur lead West Ham United in the race to sign Barcelona midfielder Rafinha in this summer’s transfer window.

Rafinha ended last season on loan at Inter Milan, having joined the Italian giants from Barcelona in the January transfer window.

It is understood that Inter have turned down the chance to sign the midfielder on a permanent deal this summer, which has given both Tottenham and West Ham huge encouragement in their pursuit of the Brazilian.

According to FC Inter News, Tottenham lead their bitter London rivals in the race, and the club’s supporters have been reacting to the news on social media.

Whilst there are those who feel that Rafinha would be an excellent signing, there are also plenty who are concerned about the 25-year-old’s injury record.

He might be surplus to requirements at Barcelona, but this is a player who has scored 11 times in 79 appearances for one of the best club teams in world football.

Rafinha will not turn 26 until next February, meanwhile, and there is absolutely no question that he has the qualities to be a success in the Premier League if given the chance.
