DON’T MESS AROUND Arsenal ‘One of Eight Clubs that Could sign Lionel Messi’ According to shock Report from Argentina
LIONEL MESSI is reportedly heading for the Barcelona exit door with ARSENAL among the teams capable of sealing a deal, according to one report.
Mikel Arteta’s side have already bagged a number of new arrivals this summer so why shouldn’t the Argentine be the natural next step after Cedric Soares and Pablo Mari were signed to permanent deals?
Indeed, the Gunners have been ranked among the eight clubs best placed to snap up Messi.
Argentine outlet Diario Ole name Arsenal alongside Manchester clubs City and United, big spenders Chelsea, and Paris Saint-Germain.
Inter and AC Milan also make the cut with Juventus finishing off the list of Europe’s giants.
Arsenal’s biggest problem, according to the report, is money.
The coronavirus pandemic has hit the North London outfit particularly hard with sweeping redundancies made across the club staff.
However, they have found the cash to bring in Willian on a £220,000-a-week deal with a bigger slice to be afforded to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang if he agrees to renew his contract.
