Turan has been included in Barcelona’s starting line up for their last three games and head coach Luis Enrique has described him as being someone with potential to be a key player in his side.

The La Liga champions booked a place in the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey following a 6-1 win on aggregate after beating Espanyol 2-0 yesterday and also beat Granada 4-0 in the league last weekend.

Turan did make his debut a fortnight ago but he has actually been at the club for six-months having joined last summer on a five-year deal from Atletico Madrid. The Turkish international star was prevented from playing due to the FIFA transfer ban which restricted the club from registering new players.

Barcelona take on Athletic Bilbao next at the Camp Nou today at the Camp Nou.
