The La Liga giants are determined to sign Bellerin this summer and identified him as the club’s number one defensive recruitment in a meeting earlier this week.

Bellerin, 22, left Barcelona for Arsenal as a 16-year-old but he fueled rumours of a return to the Nou Camp this week by refusing to rule out a move.

Arsenal hold all the cards in negotiations given Bellerin recently signed a new long-term contract and Barcelona would have to pay in the region of £50m to sign the Spaniard.

However, according to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona believe they can get the price down by offering Arsenal a choice of Turan, Suarez or Rafinha as part of any deal.

Arsene Wenger has shown strong interest in Turan in the past and the Turkey international is expected to leave the Nou Camp this summer.

Suarez, a central midfielder, returned to Barcelona after a stint at Sevilla last summer but saw his chances limited this season.

Rafinha, 24, is deemed surplus to requirements with the club and the Brazilian international would jump at the chance to move to the Premier League.
