Barca chief admits Henry interest
Thierry Henry
Barcelona president Joan Laporta has confirmed they will make a move to sign Arsenal captain Thierry Henry.

Henry's current contract runs out in the summer of 2007 and he has yet to agree a new deal at Highbury.

Barcelona star Ronaldinho has already publicly declared he would be delighted if Henry, 28, could be tempted to leave Arsenal and move to the Nou Camp.

And Laporta delivered an ominous warning to Arsenal as he told The Sun: "We will do all we can to sign Henry."

Ronaldinho also admitted he would welcome Chelsea's Frank Lampard as another summer signing by the Catalan giants.

World and European Player of the Year Ronaldinho said: "Everybody in Barcelona is talking about Thierry and Frank joining us.

"I would not be unhappy at all if those two players signed for Barcelona."

He added: "Henry is a beautiful player and has got complete technique.

"I adore watching him. I respect him very much as a man and as a footballer. He reminds me of myself.

"As for Frank, I think it would be fantastic if the club could get him to join us."

Barcelona will once again meet Chelsea in the last 16 of the Champions League when the competition resumes in February.
