Nadir Belhadj has admitted any player would be interested in joining Barcelona after being praised by Xavi.
Belhadj's future has been the subject of speculation for some time following a series of eye-catching performances for Portsmouth over the past couple of years.
Pompey have asked to sell players outside the transfer window due to their perilous financial position and Belhadj is one of those linked with a move away.
The Algerian full-back would be expected to attract interest and Barcelona midfielder Xavi has claimed that he would be a good signing for the European champions.
Xavi stated recently that he had been impressed by Belhadj and compatriot Madjid Bougherra at the African Cup of Nations.
Belhadj is flattered by Xavi's praise and concedes that he would be open to a move to Camp Nou.
"Who would not want to play for them?" he said in the Daily Express.
"It is a real honour for a world-class player such as Xavi to say good things about me."
