Barcelona are in the market for some of the established stars in the market this summer, with the list including the likes of Lionel Messi and Ilkay Gundogan.

However, the Catalans are also scouring the market for hidden gems, who can prove to be excellent long-term investments. According to reports relayed by Mundo Deportivo, Arda Guler could be one such option.

As per the report, Barcelona have not withdrawn their interest in Guler, despite the fact that the youngster’s price has risen significantly in recent months. With six goals and four assists for Fenerbahce, the attacking midfielder has made waves in Turkish football.

Guler’s performances have not gone unnoticed, with Barcelona interested in his services. The Blaugrana, though, are facing immense competition from PSG, Arsenal, Napoli and Ajax, among others.

But despite the competition, Barça have maintained their interest in the player. They are confident of their sporting project and would be willing to take the bet on Guler.

The biggest obstacle for Barça would be to incorporate Guler into their current wage structure, which requires restructuring. Given the fact that the club cannot afford to spend €20 million on the talent, they are looking for economic solutions.

One such solution could see Barcelona signing Guler on a loan deal with an option to buy at the end of next season. Despite the previous struggles of Emre Demir, the club are willing to take the bet on yet another Turkish talent.

However, it remains to be seen whether Fenerbahce entertain their proposal, knowing some of the other clubs across Europe would be more than willing to splash the cash for the youngster in the summer.

The coming weeks could prove to be crucial, as far as the future of Arda Guler is concerned.
