Barcelona have set their sights on West Ham United’s French international star Dimitri Payet.

The Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo have stated that the Catalan giants are interested in signing Payet in the summer.

The Frenchman has been on stunning form since joining the Hammers from Marseille in the summer. Payet has 11 assits and 12 goals in 33 games for West Ham this season.

The report comes amid speculation linking Arda Turan with a move away from Barcelona.

The Turkish international has come under criticism in recent weeks and has been the subject of an offer from the Chinese Super League.

Chelsea are also reported to be interested in Turan after new boss Antonio Conte reportedly expressed an interest. TalkSport reported that the former Juventus manager is already making preparations for next season and has placed the Turkish international on his transfer shortlist.

Turan missed the first six-months of the season due to the Barcelona transfer ban and has only played for his new club since January.
