Barcelona star has received a huge offer from China according to Spanish sports newspaper Sport.

The report did not actually give a figure but stated that a ‘multi-million’ bid had been made.

Barca boss Luis Enrique is however, reluctant to let go of Turan who he pushed the board to sign for €34 million from Atletico Madrid over the summer.

Arsenal are also interested in Turan according to Spanish sports newspaper AS which claims the Gunners have expressed an interest in the the 29-year-old.

Turan even revealed that he though he could have ended up playing for Arsenal over the summer.

Speaking in an interview with Ara Diari Turan said: “I felt that if I play really well, I will end up signing for Barcelona, because my style suits theirs. I also thought if I play well I could end up at Arsenal.”

Turan has settled in quickly to Barcelona after missing the first six-months due to the FIFA transfer ban imposed on the club.

The bearded winger has two goals and four assists in the 17 games he has featured in this season and still has another five years remaining on his contract.

The Turkish international star recently also claimed that he will remain at Barcelona next season.

“For me it’s a new system, a language that I still have to learn. Next year will be better,” Turan told Diario Ara.

“I know that from here I will be improving. Now it’s time to win titles and the year that comes will be better for me.”
