Barcelona manager, Xavi Hernandez, has insisted that Raphinha will not leave the club this January.
Raphinha has endured a tough debut campaign at the Nou Camp after making a £55 million move from Leeds in the summer.
It has led to speculations linking the Brazilian with a move away from Spain.
A return to Arsenal, who were interested last year, has been mooted.
However, Xavi speaking on the player’s future, said: “Raphinha will be important for us; I’ve no doubts on that.
“Rafa will be very important as I have great confidence in him for Barcelona’s future”.
