Liverpool and Everton target Federico Fazio will end up at Barcelona, according to one of his teammates.
The 26-year-old, who has also been tracked by Southampton in recent seasons, is currently starring at Sevilla, where he has established himself as one of the most impressive centre-backs in La Liga.
The Argentina international has racked up well over 100 league appearances since his 2007 move from Ferro Carril Oeste.
Fazio's club-mate and compatriot Diego Perotti, who is currently on loan at Boca Juniors, believes the defender can eventually join Barcelona.
Perotti told El Desmarque Radio: "I see him at Barcelona. Fede is going to be the best central defender in Europe. With his height and his way of playing he will be the best - nothing is missing for him to be a starter at Barcelona."
Fazio, who is valued at around £5.5m, is under contract at Sevilla until the summer of 2018.
