Barcelona have moved for Sevilla midfielder Christian Poulsen.

It's emerged that Barca sports chief Txiki Begiristain has already held talks with the Denmark international's agent, Bayram Tutumlu, about an end-of-season deal.

Poulsen insists he's settled at Sevilla, however Begiristain is now aware that Barca will only have to cough up £7 million to meet the midfielder's buyout clause.
