Barcelona presidential candidate Josep Maria Bartomeu has confirmed that Atletico Madrid winger Arda Turan is one of his targets ahead of this month's election.
The 28-year-old will almost surely leave Atletico during the summer transfer window with a number of top European clubs all ready to make a move.
Reports claim that the Turkey international would prefer to stay in the Spanish Liga, making Barcelona strong favourites to sign him in the summer.
"He's a very good player," Bartomeu told Esport3.
"He has real quality and perfectly marries what Luis Enrique wants for next season.
"As such, as a candidate, I encourage the board to sign the player.
"In this way, next season, we'll have a team that will be very competitive and primed to win all possible titles."
