Gumusdag visited Barcelona earlier this week to meet Turan.

Turan joined Barca in 2015 from Atletico Madrid for €35 million in 2015 but he was not able to make his debut until January of the following year due to Barca's transfer ban.

The Turkish global failed to make a single appearance under Ernesto Valverde this season and was linked with a move to Arsenal.

The Barca man's former club Galatasaray were heavily linked with a bid for their one-time captain, with Arsenal also having been persistently touted as a possible destination for the experienced attacking midfielder/winger.
