Turkish Giants to rival Tottenham in race to sign Barcelona star Rafinha

Fenerbahce have joined the race to sign Barcelona star midfielder Rafinha this summer.

Premier League giants Tottenham have been linked with a move for the Brazil international earlier this summer.

However, according to the Turkish outlet CNN Turkey, the London based club will face serious competition from Fenerbahce for Rafinha.

Per the source,  Fenerbahce are prepared to guarantee the midfielder a key role in his side in a bid to convince him to shun a move to the Premier League.

The Yellow Canaries want to sign Rafinha on a season-long loan with an option to buy included. CNN go onto state that Fenerbahce have offered to pay Rafinha’s wages in-full and have offered Barcelona €2 million as a loan fee.
