Barcelona ace Xavi Hernandez believes Fraser Forster would not be out of place at the Catalan club.

The Celtic goalkeeper, who has performed so well against the Blaugrana in the Champions League in the past 12 months, is being linked with a potential move to the Nou Camp next summer which has prompted kind praise from star playmaker Xavi.

“I think the players all know about the Forster interest - and it is a player we know very well,” said Xavi.

“I can't say that I watch him every week - but when we have played Celtic he has shown that he is a world-class goalkeeper.

“From what I have seen he has everything to succeed at a club like Barcelona - and with his Champions League performances for Celtic I am sure there will be more than one big club interested in him.”
