Raphinha appears to have no intention of negotiating a move to Emirates Stadium, despite the fact that regular starts have been difficult to come by this season in a star-studded Barcelona squad.
Arsenal will continue to scout the market for potential additions as they sit top of the Premier League table, although luring South American sensation Raphinha away from Liga table-toppers may be difficult given that the winter window closes on January 31.
