Iniesta announced on Friday that he will be leaving the Catalan giants at the end of the campaign, with a move to China reportedly on the cards.

RB Leipzig forward  Yussuf Poulsen believes Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen is capable of replacing the 33-year-old at Barca.

"Yes. Of course there will be more competition at Barcelona than at Tottenham," Poulsen told Omnisport.
 
"He has got a very good standing at Tottenham right now and he has to ascertain if it is the right moment.
 
"Of course there will be a vacancy if Andres Iniesta leaves the club and Christian Eriksen has definitely the quality to compete on the highest level. Therefore I understand why Barcelona is interested in him."
