Arda Turan gestures during the Spanish King's Cup round 16 second leg soccer match against RCD Espanyol played at Power8 Stadium in Cornella-El Prat, Barcelona, Spain, 13 January 2016.

It's been a complicated season for Arda Turan following his move from the Calderon to the Catalan capital. The Barcelona FIFA ban meant that the Turkish star wasn't able to commence playing for Barça until early January 2015 and his performances for the league champions have been disappointing by the previous high standards set by the Fatih born player.

The 30 year old player is currently on vacation after competing with the Turkish national squad at Euro 2016 which saw a disappointing group exit for Fatih Terim's side and once again, Turan had an indifferent tournament often on the receiving end of whistles from the Turkish support.

Arda is expected to meet with Luis Enrique when the club reconvenes for 2016/17 pre season training to discuss the role the Asturian coach has in mind for the Turkish international for the season ahead. 30 million euro has been cited as the minimum price that the Catalan club would accept from would be suitors for the signature of the international with existing interest from Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund and Istanbul giants Fenerbahce, eternal rivals of Arda's boyhood club Galatasaray.
