BARCELONA are reportedly interested in signing Manchester City star Ilkay Gundogan.
The LaLiga giants are hoping to sign the midfielder on a free transfer in the summer.

Barcelona have been a big mover in the Bosman market due to the club's recent financial constraints.
They signed the likes of Frank Kessie, Marcos Alonso, Hector Bellerin and Andreas Christensen on free transfers last summer.
