Arsenal fans have been dreading the departure of Alexis Sanchez ever since it became obvious that the Chilean wasn’t going to sign a new contract at the club.
However, the north London club could be coming out of the January transfer window in better shape than they entered it - despite losing Sanchez.
That’s because they have received Henrikh Mkhitaryan in return from Manchester United.
Ok, Mkhitaryan might not be quite as talented as Sanchez but when you consider they could soon be adding Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to their squad, you can’t blame Gooners for feeling a little bit excited.
Arsenal have been heavily linked with the Borussia Dortmund striker, a player that has scored 100 goals in his previous 118 appearances in all competitions for the German club.
Supporters are praying that Aubameyang will soon join his former Dortmund teammate at the Emirates and Mkhitaryan might have just revealed that he will.
WHAT MKHITARYAN CAN BE HEARD SAYING
During a 'behind-the-scenes' video of Mkhitaryan's announcement, he can *just* be heard saying: “Yo Pierre, you want to come out here?”
If you didn’t know, this phrase came from ‘The Jamie Foxx Show: “Magnolia” and has since infiltrated the pop culture recently.
ARSENAL FANS REACT
Anyway, after Twitter user @Makhiavelli noticed it, he shared it on Twitter. And to say it got Arsenal fans excited would be an understatement.
ARSENAL'S OFFICIAL ACCOUNT EVEN REPLIED
In fact, it caused such a stir that Arsenal’s official Twitter page replied: “Oh ffs” before deleting it.
What an incredible error.
And it’s not as though they can just delete Mkhitaryan’s video, either.
Of course, just because Mkhitaryan said that, it doesn’t mean Aubameyang is definitely coming.
Maybe the social media team were just getting prepared just in case the Gabon international does make the move.
But they will be seriously regretting their error with fans now fully expecting another signing very soon.
