Arsenal will look to regain top spot in the Premier League when they face old rivals Manchester United on Sunday. 

The Gunners were nocked down to second on Saturday when reigning champions Manchester City defeated Fulham 4-0, but they could return to the summit with victory at Old Trafford.

Manager Mikel Arteta will expect to see his side emerge victorious against a Red Devils side that have been in poor form of late.

In the meantime, Arsenal are one of several Premier League clubs that have been offered the chance to sign a La Liga star.

As per The Boot Room, both Arsenal and North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur have been told that Barcelona forward Raphinha will be available this summer.

Raphinha could return to the Premier League this summer

The two clubs have both shown interest in the former Leeds United man, and Liverpool, Aston Villa and Newcastle United are also said to have shown interest and therefore have been notified.

Raphinha, 27, departed Elland Road to join Barcelona in 2022 and has since made 85 appearances for the Spanish club across all competitions, scoring 19 goals and providing 24 assists.

He had played an integral role for the Whites the previous year, helping them avoid relegation from the English top flight on the final day of the season.

It is also claimed that London sides Chelsea and West ham United have previously been interested in a move for the forward and have been made aware of his current situation, but it is not yet clear whether or not they will reignite their interest.

Barcelona forked out a fee of £50 million to sign the Brazil international two years ago, and the report claims that the La Liga giants expect to make a profit on him if they do let him leave in the coming months.
