I mean, I guess it could work but we reckon Wenger still likes the look of Yaya Sanogo...
As things go, we imagine it must be pretty tough if you're an Arsenal fan during a transfer window – it's been kind of bleak in the past two.
In fact, we reckon it feels like being an angsty teenager, not quite being able to do all the great things that you want to do.
However, there was a slight stumbling block that we're not sure any of the Gunners hierarchy would be quite willing to see past... Messi would, apparently, want £600,000-a-week!
Now, as you can imagine plenty of fans were a bit stunned by that figure, with a few asking Mathieu Flamini for a loan. We're not too sure that would happen, but another Arsenal fan has thought of a pretty clever solution to funding the Messi move, but he needs 599,999 more to join him.
I mean it could work, Arsenal do have a reported 113million worldwide fans, according to a BBC study. So you know what to do Gunners fans! Get your wallet out and snap up Messi.
