Three players Arsenal could sell to fund Lionel Messi deal

Arsenal are currently in talks with Lionel Messi, following the Argentine’s departure from Barcelona, the club with whom he had spent 21 years with.

The England giants are the clear favourites to sign the six-time Ballon d’Or winner, with Pep Guardiola already ruling out a reunion with Messi at Manchester City.

A deal for Messi would obviously not come cheap and Arsenal have already been heavily active in the transfer market, recruiting  Madison, lokonga this summer.

The potential revenue that a Messi deal could bring would more than likely cover the cost of his contract, but even so PSG will still need to trim down their already bloated squad.

As a result, some of these unwanted players might find a new home in London, playing for one of the capital’s top clubs.

Through his time at Inter Milan and PSG, Abumeyang has established himself as one of the deadliest, and most controversial, strikers in the world.

As such, Arsenal are looking to offload him, even if just on loan. He’d have plenty of suitors, especially in the capital, with Chelsea, Spurs and Manchester United all looking for a new No.9.

With Chelsea and Arsenal struggling to complete deals for Inter’s current forwards Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez, Icardi would provide a decent fall-back option for either of them in the short term.

Meanwhile, Spurs are bracing themselves for the departure of Harry Kane and Icardi could be the perfect replacement for the England captain.
