The club are weighing up an offer for Barcelona midfielder Rafinha after his permanent move to Inter Milan was placed in doubt, according to Sport.

The Catalan publication say that the Serie A club have reneged on their agreement to sign the Brazilian on a permanent basis for €35m (£31m), and want to negotiate a lower fee.

Rafinha spent the second half of last season on loan at the San Siro with the Italian side having a purchase option, but despite their qualification for the Champions League, they are still reluctant to pay the agreed amount.

We could, therefore, capitalise on the dispute. Sport believe that Mauricio Pochettino is a fan of the 25-year-old and is keen to strengthen the centre of midfield with the Brazilian international.

It is said that we would have no problem paying Barca’s asking price, but his problems with injury and his middling displays for Inter in the second of last season would make me question whether he’d be a likely target.

  • Make-weight for Ericksen?! Is he even good enough let alone competent for the Prem in the first place and then to fill Ericksen’s almighty boots?! Tell Barca where to go on both count’s quite frankly – both in terms of Rafinha and especially also as a make-weight.

  • Problem is Frank as I’ve written elsewhere I reckon it’s only a matter of time before Ericksen and probably Harry leave hence why I’m miffed and said what I said above.

  • So far the rumour mill has gone from the sublime to the ridiculous. Ericksen and Kane are going nowhere in the foreseeable future especially now since Spurs are “splashing the cash” to resign our finest assets. Not sure we are so flush we can afford the quality we actually need. Plenty of grade B talent getting bandied about as the European giants make their annual clear outs. So far our Summer exodus is not happening. Keeping Toby will actually be a good move as the devil we know is better than a punt on another defender of unproven Premier league quality. Seems many teams are waiting to see who or what turns up in the World Cup talent window. Could conclude in a monster rush to secure the services of hidden talent that have hitherto slipped under the radar.
    Not certain we should be in a hurry to secure the services of Grealish who is somewhat “iffy”. Better value could lay elsewhere. We will see…..

  • Jesus we now have fans saying Erik and “Our Arry” will/are leaving with no substance, why bother with the ITK and the media bullcrap, just ask these fans, as jvd said “more rubbish”. COYS
