Just last week, rumours surfaced that Lionel Messi could join Arsenal next season on a staggering £600,000-a-week contract. Now, the Gunners are linked with yet another superstar in Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Swedish striker has previously admitted he took too long in making a move to the Premier League, though his dream to taste success in what is regarded the world's toughest league could soon become a reality.

Ibrahimovic was asked to trial for Arsenal when he was a fresh-faced 17-year-old, but famously told Arsene Wenger: "Zlatan doesn't do auditions."

And some 17 years later, it seems Wenger could finally link up with the PSG forward.

The Sunday People report, as per the Mirror, that Zlatan is interested in not only on making a move to the Premier League but also joining the Gunners almost exclusively, claiming he wants to work with Wenger personally and move to north London.

The addition of Ibrahimovic to the Gunners would provide a massive lift for the club who've long been scarce of major titles, having last won the Premier League in 2004, and would most importantly prove to be the world-class striker that fans have long yearned for.

Not since the days of Thierry Henry have the Gunners had a striker like Ibrahimovic, with current forward Olivier Giroud the subject of debate as to whether the Frenchman is capable of spearheading a title charge.

Arsenal would have no problem in offering a financial package capable of enticing the 34-year-old next summer - when his contract with PSG runs out - and the addition of a new television deal as of next season only increases the north Londoner's chances of acquiring one of the best players on the planet.
