Rafinha could become a part of Operation Bellerin. That's what Marca have reported, saying that Barcelona are looking at all possible options which could help them sign the Arsenal right-back.
According to these reports, Arsenal consider the Hispanic-Brazilian a good player and someone they may be keen on. Meanwhile, Rafinha's desire to find regular first team football could see him leave Barça this summer.
Barcelona's priority is to sign a right-back and Bellerin is the first option. But the price Arsenal are asking -- they won't go below 30 million euros -- is considered too high by the Catalan club.
Therefore, they're looking at ways to reduce the fee. The inclusion of a player in any potential deal, such as Rafinha, is an option the club would be happy to do.
Bellerin, for now, has bought a house in Catalonia and his family have returned from London. He knows talks over the deal could drag on and that they may not even start until July.
