Wales boss Chris Coleman says he is not surprised that Barcelona are interested in Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey.
After successfully recovering from a serious injury in 2010, the 24-year-old has become a solid regular in Arsene Wenger's starting eleven.
But the Spanish giants are ready to make a move for the Welshman when their transfer ban ends next year.
"I am not surprised at that link because if you look at the way he plays and the way Barcelona play with all that imagination, it is not too dissimilar to the way Arsenal play," Coleman is quoted as saying by Express Sport.
"People dismissed it a bit, but he is Welsh. I promise you if he was English it would be different.
"It's not the players' fault that these fees are being bandied about. You look at Gareth Bale and £80million and it's always been the attitude that we are little old Wales. We are a small nation so it's like, 'Why would Real Madrid want him?'
"But just look at the cold facts. Is he good enough to play for them? Of course he is.
"Barca signed Ivan Rakitic from Sevilla last year. He's a good player. Some people were scoffing at that. But he's a good player. And if Barca are looking at Rambo then it's for a reason.
"It's for his style of play. He's already playing for Arsenal who play a similar style. He's playing at the top of the Premier League, Champions League every season.
"So ability-wise at his best is Aaron good enough for Barcelona? Yes he is."
