Barcelona Interested in Tuncay Sanli

According to various European media outlets including Hurriyet and, Spanish giants Barcelona are interested in Fenerbahce star Tuncay Sanli. Barcelona manager Frank Rikjaard recently praised Tuncay and "sees him as cover for Samuel Eto'o."
Tuncay had remained mum on transfer rumors throughout the season, but following Fener's championship-clinching victory on Sunday, he stated "My original goal has always been to win the championship with Fenerbahce. I have now achieved that.
So now I will consider all offers. I want to join a team that regularly plays in Europe."
Tuncay is one of many Fenerbahce players whose contract expires at the end of the season. Fenerbahce officials have stated that they wish to keep the core of the current team intact, but the only player who seems close to inking a new contract is Brazilian star Alex de Souza.
Barcelona is coming off a good but disappointing season in 2007, including an earlier-than-expected UEFA Champions League exit and a 4-0 La Liga thrashing last weekend.
