Rafinha, who has been tentatively linked with a summer switch to Everton in recent times, is keen to snub Premier League interest to sign for Inter Milan ahead of next season.

The likes of West Ham, Everton, Arsenal and Tottenham have been heavily linked with respective swoops for the Brazilian midfielder but according to reports from Italy, Inter is Rafinha’s preferred destination this summer.

Everton were allegedly eyeing the Barcelona star after being left impressed by his displays at San Siro last season, but it seems he has his heart set on another move to the Italian outfit.

Rafinha spent the second half of last season on loan at Inter and it’s believed that he is keen to continue playing under Luciano Spalletti, who he flourished under.

Everton have not yet completed the signing of a player this summer and with the season starting near the beginning of August, Marco Silva and Marcel Brands will be keen to speed up the club’s summer dealings.
