Arsenal fans on Twitter bombard Barcelona with terrible transfer advice

Arsenal fans on social media have been bombarding Barcelona with terrible transfer advice after the Catalan club called off the transfer of Jean Michael Seri.

Seri, 26, was expected to complete a big money move from Nice but Barca decided to pull the plug on the deal at the last minute.

Expecting to join Barcelona in the coming days, the Ivorian midfielder played 90 minutes in Tuesday night's Champions League play-off 4-0 aggregate defeat to Napoli.

Linked to Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele, the La Liga giants have funds at their disposal following the recent €222m sale of Neymar to PSG.

Barcelona may have money but their squad is currently the weakest it has been in years.

Their fans are desperate to see some new signings following the not-so-inspiring summer additions of Nelson Semedo, Gerard Deulofeu and Paulinho.

Incredible claims reported by Catalan radio station RAC1 suggested Barcelona only became interested in Seri because fans were urging the club to sign him on social media.

This has caused Arsenal fans to work together on Twitter in order to help facilitate the sale of 28-year-old Theo Walcott.

Signed from Southampton for £12m at the age of 16, Walcott, labelled as one of the most exciting teenage sensations on the planet, has failed to fulfil his huge potential in north London.

Despite that, he's been capped 47 times by England and netted his 100th goal for the Gunners earlier in 2017.

Arsenal fans on Twitter are keen to help Barcelona spend their money, following reports of their bizarre social media scouting system.

The club's longest serving player, Walcott has come off the bench in each of Arsenal's opening two Premier League games of the season.

“We know what we want to do this season," said Walcott after the Community Shield victory over Chelsea. "We know how important it is. Everyone’s up for the challenge – you know we do like a good challenge. It’s going to be different for us this year but it’s about the way we react, it’s as simple as that.

“We can’t really dwell on the past any more, we need to focus on our strengths.”

The Gunners were beaten 1-0 by Stoke City last weekend and face a tricky trip to Anfield on Sunday afternoon.
