Barcelona forward Ronaldinho has admitted it would be “a dream” if Arsenal striker Thierry Henry joined the Spanish champions during the close season.

“When I take a look at all the players in the world, I say to myself that he is the very image of Barcelona,” the Brazilian international told French daily Le Parisien on Wednesday.

“We could take him right now. His pace and technique make him one of the best players in the world.

“It would be a dream to have him with us and to play with him.”

Henry was the top scorer in the 2004-05 English Premier League with 25 goals in 38 games and with one round of matches remaining, he is on course to retain his ESM Golden Boot award as Europe’s leading striker.
