Henry is set to put the finishes touches on his move to Barca in the next few days, with the deal reportedly worth 24million euros (£16million). The France international turns 30 in August but Soriano believes they are paying the going rate for the Gunners superstar.
"There is a certain inflation in the transfer fees with respect to last year," Soriano told Catalan radio station RAC1. "We can check it (the Henry deal) with the signing of Ribery for Bayern (believed to be around 25million euros) (£17million) and those of Nani and Anderson, who are 18, for Manchester United (believed to be around 50million euros) (£34million)."
