Neymar has added his opinion to the growing noise surrounding Marco Verratti's potential move to Barcelona, saying he would love the Italian at Camp Nou.

The latest speculation claims Verratti has told Paris Saint-Germain he wants to move to the Blaugrana, although the Ligue 1 side remain determined to keep hold of him.

Robert Fernandez, meanwhile, has promised "big-name signings" this summer and Neymar says Verratti would be widely welcomed at the club.

"Of course I would like [Verratti] to come to Barcelona, I would love it," he told Sport. "He's a top player, a player with incredible technical quality."

"He has the profile and the right qualities to play with us at Barca.

"If [Barça] sign Verratti, I'm convinced that the whole team will receive him with a lot of happiness because he's an amazing player."

Neymar certainly seems to be a recruiting mission this summer having already reportedly told the club to sign Lucas Lima from Santos.
