Andres Iniesta and Denis Suarez have urged Real Madrid’s Isco, to join them at Barcelona.
Isco’s current deal at the Santiago Bernabeu expires in 2018 and he has been linked with a move away this summer.
Reports in Spain this week claim Barca are ready to pay the 24-year-old a big signing-on fee, if he runs down his deal and then moved to Camp Nou on a free transfer.
“He is a fantastic player, with an incredible talent,” Iniesta told reporters.
“For many years he has been doing things very well and he is playing for one of the best teams in the world.
“He is an important player not just in the national team but in his club. He is young and has many years to grow and improve.”
Suarez however remains cautious about a possible deal. The last player to move directly from Real Madrid to Barcelona was Luis Enrique in 1996
“Of course I would like to have Isco as a team-mate, all good players are welcome in our team,” he said to Cadena Ser.
“Isco has an incredible talent but right now he is under contract with Real.
“We have to wait and see what happens. If he doesn’t sign a contract extension, then we can talk.”
