Rafinha is one of the players Barcelona are happy to let leave this month. The Brazilian midfielder is aware that after a long injury layoff and the signing of Philippe Coutinho his chances of playing regularly are limited.

It's a situation which he has thought about given how much he plays in the next six months will have an effect on his chances of going to the world Cup with Brazil. 

He feels, therefore, that he must look for an exit and everything points to Italy. Inter are the side leading the push for the player and have asked Barça to take him on loan until the end of the season with an option to buy in the summer (Barça would want €20 million). 

However, Inter aren't the only side interested. Celta Vigo are also after Rafinha. Their sporting director, Felipe Miñambres, admitted this week that the Galician club would like to bring him back for a second loan spell -- he was there under Luis Enrique in 2013-14. 

Finally, according to Catalunya Radio, Arsene Wenger's Arsenal are the third club with an eye on doing a deal for Rafinha in January.
