Wenger makes Bayern Munich star top Arsenal target

Arsenal has reportedly prepared a lucrative offer to lure Bayern Munich defender Márcio Rafael Ferreira de Souza, (commonly known as Rafinha) to the Emirates Stadium this summer. The 30-year-old right-back has only a year left on his current contract at the Allianz Arena and could be allowed to exit the club this summer with the Bundesliga champion hunting for young legs to fill his potential vacant position.

According to Sport Bild, the Gunners have offered the Brazil international a three-year contract which may seem too good for him to reject.

Arsenal is currently short of players at the right-back. With the uncertainties surrounding the future of Bordeaux loanee Mathieu Debuchy and the non consistency of former Southampton player Calum Chambers, the London club is left with only Hector Bellerin for the position.

Sport Bild also reported the Bavarians are considering the possibility of signing either Arsenal's Bellerin or Real Madrid's Dani Carvajal. And it is not certain Arsene Wenger would be interested in a swap deal as the Frenchman wants more addition at the right-back.

Rafinha, who turn 31 in September has enjoyed a trophy-laden spell at Bayern Munich since joining them five years ago, winning three Bundesliga titles, three German Cup, the Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup and the Club World Cup.  He has made 22 appearances for the German giants in all competitions
this season.
