Barcelona are eyeing FC Basel goalkeeper Yann Sommer.

The Swiss is under consideration at Barca as they prepare to farewell No1 Victor Valdes at the end of the season.

Punto Pelota says 24 year-old Sommer's name features on a seven-man shortlist at Barca and has been scouted extensively this season.

Barca coaching staff believe his ability to play out from the back fits the club's style and Basel's €5 million asking price is also a positive.
