Arthur, who is arguably the standout performer out of the club's recent signings, has featured regularly alongside Ivan Rakitic and Sergio Busquets this season.

The Brazilian has received a number of plaudits as a result this season, most notably former Barca midfield maestro Xavi.

"To receive praise from a player who I was a huge fan of is a massive confidence boost for me, but I have to know how to deal with any praise I get," Arthur told Globo Esporte.
 
"I can't let it go to my head. I feel very lucky to have my family to guide me through the difficult times.
 
"That's why I brought them all with me to Barcelona because moving to Europe was a big change in my life."
 
 
The 22-year-old joined the Catalan giants from Gremio in a deal reportedly worth €31 million (R499 million) in July this year.
 
Do you think Arthur has been Barca's best signing so far this season? Let us know in the comment section below.
