An Arsenal fan is looking to hire a troll, and he's prepared to pay up to $150 per match if he finds the right candidate on Gumtree.

The 27-year-old, identified by Eurosport only as "Dino," is a legal professional based in Australia and is finding getting up in the small hours of the morning for Champions League nights too much of a task.

Accordingly, he is looking for someone to assume his persona on social media and make him look good with Arsenal-related banter.

If it sounds like easy money, don't be so sure—the ad refers to a three-day interview process, weekly team meetings to brainstorm ideas, the receipt of a style guide to sound like Dino and specific targets to "troll."

Still, as he writes:

"This is an enormous opportunity for a young go-getter to receive great experience in the art of football banter, while building contacts in the football fan underworld."

And if banter isn't incentive enough, you may even get the chance to chat up the ladies:

"The successful applicant may also be trained to engage in strategic flirting and mind games with several females via the Facebook Messenger application."

If you fancy taking on the job, then wait no longer—you can respond to the posting right here.

It might be amongst the stranger listings we've ever seen on Gumtree, but we have a feeling that there'll be no shortage of takers—and moreover, Dino won't be the last to make this kind of offer in the future:
