Juve aim for winter Rafinha deal

Juventus are keen on concluding a deal for Barcelona midfielder Rafinha Alcantara in January, according to reports.

The Brazilian has been out since April with a knee injury and had been linked with a move away over the summer with Ernesto Valverde said to be willing to sanction his sale.

Diario AS cites a report in Sportmediaset which states the Bianconeri are key to wrap up a quick deal which would see the 24-year-old move to Serie A in winter.

The midfielder has struggled with injuries since rupturing his ACL against Roma in 2015, scoring seven times in 28 appearances last season.

AS concludes their report by stating Barca would be keen to sell and it could mean a prolonged stay at the club for Andre Gomes.
