Spanish daily sports paper COTE is reporting that Inter and Barcelona are set to agree terms on a deal for their Brazilian midfielder Rafinha. It is no secret that Inter are desperate to add an attacking midfielder to their ranks and the 24-year-old seemingly fits what Inter are after.
With the arrivals of Philippe Coutinho and Yerry Mina at the Nou Camp in this window already, Barcelona are looking to offload some players in this January transfer window. Arda Turan is another player that could leave the Spanish giants and is being linked with a return to Turkey. The deal for Rafinha would see him move to Inter on loan now in January with the option for Inter to purchase him outright in the summer for a fee in the region of €18 million. According to COTE, the deal has been agreed in principle and the move will be finalised soon.
