Arsenal have made contact with Barcelona to explore deals for Raphinha and Ferran Torres, 90min understands.

The Gunners have been keen to sign a winger since the summer, when they initially failed with a bid to persuade Raphinha to stay in England. The Brazilian left Leeds United for Barcelona, also rejecting Chelsea in the process.

Sights had been set on Mykhaylo Mudryk but the Ukraine international is now on his way to Chelsea after the Blues agreed to pay his €100m asking price, with Arsenal refusing to increase their final bid which ultimately fell just short.
