Reports have emerged naming Barcelona winger Arda Turan as a possible target for Milan. The Turk looks set to depart Spain this summer, having failed to settle in at the Catalan giants and Milan could be a possible destination for him.

Barcelona have made a number of first team signings this summer, bringing in the likes of Lucas Digne, Samuel Umtiti and Andre Gomes. However, given such expenditure, they need to shift some players on in order to balance the books and Turan looks set to be one of the first names out of the door.

The former Atletico Madrid man could be available for as little as 13 million Euros, although even that could be too much for Milan right now given the situation regarding the takeover of the club, as well as the sale of Carlos Bacca. Nonetheless, Milan are in need of some quality out wide and Turan would represent a clear upgrade on any of the Rossoneri's current options.

Juan Cuadrado has also been linked and although the Colombian is most probably the better option, he would cost more than double the fee Barcelona want for Turan. However, Milan are likely to face competition from both rival Serie A clubs, as well as Premier League sides Arsenal and Chelsea in their pursuit of the Turk winger..
