Zlatan Ibrahimovic is one of the most iconic players in world football. The Paris Saint-Germain striker has established himself as one of the leading stars in the game and he has certainly built up quite the reputation.
The Swede, who is swiftly approaching the final stages of his career, has fascinated and wowed crowds for well over a decade.
Having played his football all over the world, the robust striker has a global following. It appears, though, that he has a fairly high-profile fan from north London.

The fan: Santi Cazorla.
The Arsenal ace, who himself has become a firm favourite with the fans, has revealed that he has named his dog after Ibrahimovic.
Zlatan the dog
During a quickfire Q&A session with Nacho Monreal, Cazorla admitted that he preferred the Brazilian Ronaldo to Portuguese phenomenon Cristiano Ronaldo while revealing his love for omelettes.
But could anyone really care about that? Cazorla has a dog called Zlatan Ibrahimovic. That is truly brilliant.
The Arsenal midfielder told his teammate: "I had a dog (when I was growing up) But I don't remember it's name, I was very young. Maybe Nacho.
"I have three dogs now. Their names are Zlatan, Mary and Paco. I named it for Zlatan Ibrahimovic."
Arsenal fans, of course, will be hoping to see Cazorla and Ibrahimovic take to the field together at the Emirates Stadium next season.
With the superstar's contract set to run out in the French capital at the end of the campaign, his future in the game is very much in doubt.
The Gunners have been linked with his signature, but it's far from certain as to whether a deal will come to prominence.
Ibrahimovic most definitely represents the talismanic figure that the Arsenal faithful crave, but they won't be getting their hopes up at this stage. There looks set to be a number of twists and turns in this saga over the coming months.
