Barcelona Superstar Lionel Messi wants his La Liga side to bring in Arsenal star Mesut Özil than Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho, according to Don Balon via The Daily Star.

The report claims the five-time Ballon d’Or recipient has called on club chiefs to look at signing Ozil on a free at the end of the season, rather than spending a fortune on bringing in Coutinho.

Coutinho’s side Liverpool have already turned down multiple mouthwatering offers for the Brazil international attacking midfielder, so it’s tough to say if another big money approach next summer would convince the Reds to sell their most prized asset.

Sounds pleasing to Arsenal fans to hear that one of the Greatest players on the planet reportedly wants to play with their man, but will be hoping its just a wish.

Ideally, Arsene Wenger should want to keep the German, considering his exploit lately, putting in the sort of display we witnessed last weekend.

Arsenal’s creator-in-chief, created eight goalscoring opportunities last weekend against the Toffees, more than any footballer in an English Premier League match this League season. Talkless of scoring to give the Gunners the lead.

That sort of display will surely attract the attention of one of the greatest teams in the World.
