Barcelona midfielder Deco believes Arsenal´s Alexander Hleb is the ideal candidate to replace him when he leaves the Nou Camp this summer.

The Portugal playmaker, whose four-year spell with the Primera Liga side is set to come to an end, has revealed he is a admirer of the Belarus midfielder.

"Most of the players (tipped to replace me) are good players," Deco said in an interview with El Mundo Deportivo, published on Tuesday. "I like Hleb a lot. I have followed him since his time at Stuttgart and also at Arsenal."
