Liverpool are one of three clubs interested in signing Barcelona midfielder Rafinha, according to reports in Spain.

Spanish media outlet Marca – as quoted by the Daily Express – is reporting that Liverpool are one of three clubs interested in the 24-year-old midfielder.

It is claimed that Liverpool, Roma and Juventus are the three sides chasing his signature but he is yet to be convinced to make a move.

Rafinha struggled to secure regular first-team football under Luis Enrique in the 2016-17 La Liga campaign as the Catalan side finished in second place.

The Barcelona youth graduate scored six goals and made two assists in 16 appearances in the Spanish top flight.

Liverpool secured a return to the Champions League this season after Jurgen Klopp steered the Reds to a top-four finish.

The former Borussia Dortmund boss will be eager to strengthen his squad ahead of a return to Europe’s premier club competition.

Liverpool agreed a deal to sign England Under-21 international Dominic Solanke from Premier League champions Chelsea on 1 July.
