Bookmakers have reportedly slashed the odds on the chances of Barcelona megastar Lionel Messi joining Arsenal.
The Argentine forward was recently linked with a move to the Premier League with The Gunners alleged to be his favoured destination.
And following the news that a deal could be struck at some point in the near future, bookmakers Ladbrokes have slashed odds on Messi actually making the move to North London.
Earlier this week you could get odds of 16/1, but they’ve now been cut to 5/1 on Messi rocking up at the Emirates Stadium.
However, the smart money would still be put on Messi to stay put, even though he is still currently undergoing investigation with the Spanish tax authorities.
Nonetheless, the odds being slashed do make for interesting reading, but what do you think? Let us know in the comments section.
