Barcelona likely to target Gundogan for summer transfer

BARCELONA, Spain: German international Ilkay Gundogan has become a major summer target of Barcelona, according to media reports.

Speculations are rife in Germany that the 27-year-old Manchester City midfielder would be keen on a move to the Spanish side, who are looking to recruit after the departure of Andres Iniesta.

The Spanish giants look certain to make a move for Gundogan, who has just two years left on his current deal.

He has become an important player in Pep Guardiola’s squad after arriving from Dortmund for £20milion in 2016.

Despite a serious injury setback, he has flourished under Guardiola, who said Barca would have to pay in excess of £50m.

Gundogan, who will turn out for Germany to face Mexico in the World Cup on Sunday, is happy at City but would still favour a move to the Nou Camp.
