Barca keeping an eye on possible midfielder signing.
Barcelona are supposedly keeping an eye on the situation of Atletico Madrid playmaker Koke despite their transfer ban, according to Spanish source Fichajes.com.
The Spanish international is a long-term target for Barca, who could be interested in signing him when their ban is lifted, and they are also hopeful of working a way around this issue.
Still, with the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea previously linked with the highly-rated 22-year-old, it may be that they will have the edge in any race for his signature at the moment.
However, Koke will not come cheap as he recently signed a new contract to commit his future at the Vicente Calderon.
