Arsenal target would welcome transfer to Premier League unless he can play with Messi

Long-term Arsenal target Hirving Lozano would welcome a move to the Premier League but would prefer a move to Barcelona and the opportunity to team up with Lionel Messi.

Arsenal has long been monitoring the PSV Eindhoven winger and will be a little disappointed to hear him publicly state that playing in the Premier League is his second preference.

The Mexico international revealed his intentions when speaking to Radio Marca:

“I have always said that I loved the Premier, but I also like the Spanish La Liga,” he said

Then he was asked who he would most like to play with,

“With Messi, he is a great player. For me, he is a phenomenon.”

And finally, would he welcome an offer from the Spanish giants

“Hopefully, God willing, we will see.”

It is not unusual for a player to prefer to play for Barcelona than any English club, especially if it means lining up alongside Messi, however, most clubs want players that are fully committed and who would not easily get their heads turned at a later date.
