Barcelona are keeping tabs on Arsenal star midfielder Jack Wilshere.

The Spanish giants have put together a wish list of midfielders to replace duo Xavi and Andres Iniesta.

Xavi 33 and Iniesta 29 are currently mainstays in the Barcelona midfield however the club are looking at younger options as the duo enter the twilight years of their career.

According Mundo Deportivo Wilshere is regarded as one of their top targets and impressed Barcelona scouts during trips over to England to tie up deals for former Gunners' Alex Song and Cesc Fabregas.

The England international has enjoyed a superb start to the new season helping Arsenal to the Premier League summit after eight games.

Wilshere only signed a new five-year deal at the Gunners in December 2012 and manager Arsene Wenger is unlikely to welcome any move from Barcelona.

Atletico Madrid star Koke who has been compared to Xavi is also in the Spanish side's sights.

Manchester United are set to battle Barcelona for the young midfielder and are weighing up a £16m bid which would activate his release clause from Atletico.

Ilkay Gundogan currently of Borussia Dortmund and a target of both Arsenal and United is the third and final player being watched by Barca.
