It look's like it's silly season again but could you imagine...
If there's not much going on during the international break, just link Lionel Messi with a move to the Premier League, right?
So who does he want to join? Well, according to the Star, he fancies a move to... Arsenal! Yep, apparently his preferred choice is Arsene Wenger's side though we're not sure if he'd get picked ahead of Olivier Giroud...
Now, don't get too excited Gunners fans because there's a bit of a catch and a very, very expensive catch – Messi's wage. Apparently, the 28-year-old would want £600,000 a-WEEK! With the Argentine's buy-out clause of £175million, Arsene Wenger might want to start saving up now.
As you can imagine, the reaction from Arsenal fans on Twitter was pretty spectacular and here is some of the best tweets about Messi to Arsenal:
