If the Barcelona chiefs had any queries when it came to choosing their next batch of transfer targets, they have surely been answered.

In a poll by Spanish newspaper MARCA it was revealed that Chelsea 'keeper Thibaut Courtois was the most desired purchase, but there were other, less predictable, targets who also made the list.

A reported 82,653 people took part in the poll to determine who the supporters believed the club should sign, and the results were somewhat surprising.

Courtois naturally amassed a large percentage of votes when it came to who would replace Victor Valdes in goal, garnering 48.1%.

The survey also revealed that 42.8% of fans wanted Real Sociedad's Inigo Martinez to join the club, with Chelsea defender David Luiz nowhere in sight.

Perhaps the most bemusing result however was the preference of Miroslav Klose to come in as a new striker. The German striker, who is expected to leave Lazio at the end of the current campaign, managed 37.5%.
