Lionel Messi has been cut by bookmakers to make a shock move to Arsenal, the Metro reports.
The Barcelona forward has been charged for tax evasion in Spain, and is scheduled to be summoned to court in the near future.
The Argentine ace has been heavily linked with an exit following the court case, and is said to have admitted he would rather play for Arsenal if he was to leave the Catalan club.
Following reports, high-street bookmaker Ladbrokes has cut their odds on Messi joining Arsenal down to 5/1, from 16/1.
You can get a hefty 33/1 for the Ballon D’Or favourite to join the Gunners before next season, with 10/1 being available for him to play in any Premier League side next year.
Fellow Barcelona forward Neymar is also being linked with moves away from his current club due to uncertainty over tax issues, and is linked with moves to Manchester United and Chelsea at present.
