Barcelona are weighing up a move for Toulouse midfielder Etienne Capoue.

El Mundo Deportivo says Capoue is under consideration at Barca as they seek a defensive midfield signing this summer.

If terms can't be struck for Athletic Bilbao ace Javi Martinez, Barca chiefs Andoni Zubizarreta and Albert Valentín will turn to Capoue.

Barca have been watching Capoue for 18 months after being tipped off by scout Bojan Krkic Snr, the father of striker Bojan Krkic.
