The pair are out of contract in the summer and are expected to leave for pastures new. That means that the Gunners will receive no transfer fee for either player unless they are sold in January.

The 24-year-old and comes from a football family. The midfielder is the brother of Bayern Munich star Thiago Alcantara and the son of former Brazilian international Mazinho.

According to Sky Sports, Barcelona have offered midfielder Rafinha to Arsenal. The Brazilian has been left behind due to a knee injury while the rest of the squad has gone on pre-season tour. The 24-year-old is believed to be up for sale this summer, worth around €30m, and could be exiting the Camp Nou as a result.

Brother of Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara, Rafinha recently said: “My future is open and God only knows what will happen.” A lack of playing time could well be behind his decision to leave the club, making just 14 La Liga starts last season, scoring and creating an impressive eight goals.

Bellerin emerged as one of the most important players for Gunners last season, whereas he also broke into the Spanish international side.

The Brazilian forward has struggled to break into the first team at Camp Nou due to the emerging presence of the almighty MSN trio and is said to be looking for a solution to his limited playing time.

Arsenal are hoping to bring English youngster Dominic Solanke from Premier League rivals Chelsea in the summer transfer window, according to the latest reports.

The 18-year-old has shown a great deal of potential during the loan spell with Vitesse, scoring 7 goals in 24 Eredivisie appearances, and he is currently in talks with the Blues over a new contract.

The problem is that the youngster wants a £50,000 a week salary, while he also wants to be guaranteed that he will be given a real chance to prove his worth in the senior team at Stamford Bridge next term.
