Barcelona´s impending capture of Arsenal striker Thierry Henry has been welcomed by the Spanish giants´ playmaker Lionel Messi.

Messi for one is delighted by the chance to play alongside Henry - Arsenal´s record goalscorer will reportedly pen a four-year deal at the Nou Camp and will cost Barca £16million.

"Henry is a great player, for that reason he comes to Barca," Messi said. "´Titi´ (Henry) has shown during all these years that he is a great player. Cesc (Fabregas) has always said that ´Titi´ is fantastic in training and that he is even better away from the pitch, as a friend and a leader."
