Hosseini's father then posted a message from his son, which read: "Leo Messi, thank you for commenting on me. I wish to play for Barcelona one day."
Speaking of Arat's ambitions, he said: "He dreams about it every night. And he compares himself with Messi.
"He says, 'I will be just like him when I grew up.'"
And Messi will surely be left in awe of Hosseini's latest video as he recorded 3000 keepy-ups while wearing a Barca kit sporting his favourite footballer's name on the back.
Commenting on the clip, one fan said: "Hi Arat, you are such an incredible person and you are destined for greatness! You are a golden boy!"
Another wrote: "You are the best."
A third simply stated: "To infinity and beyond."
