Watch Arsenal transfer target Jordan's terrible bid to stop Messi as fans joke he was asking for Barcelona ace's shirt

ARSENAL transfer target Joan Jordan was tormented by Barcelona star Lionel Messi on Saturday when Sevilla hosted the Catalan side in LaLiga.

Messi set up Ousmane Dembele for the opening goal of the game and settled the match with a goal of his own six minutes from time to give Barcelona a comfortable victory.

But it was Jordan who was subjected to online mockery after the game as social media picked up on his attempt to thwart Messi.

The central midfielder could not get near the Argentinian and instead resorted to simply trying to pull his shirt to bring him down.

But even that proved too difficult a task for Jordan, who was left blushing by the six-time Ballon d'Or winner's magic.

Messi simply glided past the Sevilla man unaware of his attempts to bring him down, much to the entertainment of those watching on.

One person said: "This kills me, look at his face."

Another added: "So much rage, that guy could kill.. he needs to see a psychiatrist."

And the original post was met with a hilarious caption which read: "Another fan asking Messi for his jersey."


Jordan was linked with a move to Arsenal in January, but the transfer never materialised.

Messi is the top scorer in LaLiga so far this season with 19 goals, three ahead of former teammate Luis Suarez.

Barca's win at Sevilla sees them move two points behind Atletico in the league, but having played two more games.

Barcelona and Sevilla meet again on Wednesday night in the second leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final, which Julian Lopetegui's men currently lead 2-0.
