Brazilian legend Zico is in love with the play of Gremio midfielder Arthur.

He confirmed his love for him in an interview with the player himself, who has signed for Barcelona although we don't know when he will move to Camp Nou.

After Andres Iniesta leaves, Zico believes Arthur can make up for the loss of the Spain maestro.

Zico, an idol for Flamengo and the Brazil team in his day although he cruelly never won a World Cup, says that "Iniesta has the foobtalling quality to be Iniesta's replacement.

"Barça's interest in him is no coincidence. Barça know that they have have a gap to fill and are doing it by getting one of the best players to take his place.

"The Champions League elimination (by Roma) has changed the team a lot. I think Barça will make plenty of changes next season, especially in defence. And due to Arthur's quality, he has a very good chance of taking Iniesta's place."

Barcelona announced in March that they have reached a pre-contractual agreement to sign Arthur, who led Gremio to the Copa Libertadores last year.
