The continuing reports of a potential return to Spain for one Liverpool full back has led to talk of a Rafa target re-igniting the transfer rumour mill.
Schalke 04 rebel Rafinha is back on the agenda for Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez.
The News of the World says Alvaro Arbeloa is attracting interest from La Liga. His sale could raise £4million, which may spark renewed interest in Brazilian Rafinha. (tribalfootball.com)
Rafinha has fallen out with his Bundesliga employers over his involvement in the Olympic games for his Brazilian national team and hence the rumours about his future have exploded onto the back pages. The right back is a stylish performer who at 22 has already at Schalke and begun to get full international recognition. Having already snapped up Philipp Degen I guess one could wonder at why Rafa would sign another player in the same position but of course there is much speculation about Arbeloa’s future so who know’s where this domino rally of a transfer saga will end. Do Liverpool fans like the look of Rafinha, will his attacking abilities suit Rafa’s side?
