Arsenal fury as Iniesta calls for Cesc signing on Barcelona TV channel
Arsenal have been unwilling to negotiate so far and there is now less than a month before the transfer window closes.
Nevertheless, Iniesta is still hopeful a deal can be struck.
He told Barca TV: "We all want him to come because he will help us to go up a level - he's very complete.
"However, he belongs to Arsenal and the two clubs must understand each other (in order for a deal to be done)."
