Football London revealed a month ago that Brighton star Yves Bissouma wants to join Arsenal and is in constant contact with Gunners stars Gabriel Magalhaes and Nicolas Pepe.
The Mali international and the Arsenal pair were teammates in France at Lille. They probably are still good mates and talk regularly to this today about things in general, but could there be more to the story?
After Arsenal’s final game of the season against Brighton, it looked like Nicolas Pepe was showing Bissouma around the Emirates. The pair had a lengthy conversation on the pitch, and that raised the excitement level among the fans.
Bissouma has been toying with Arsenal supporters for days now. He has been dropping big hints on his Instagram over the last two weeks (Read here and here), and it now looks like his good pal Gabriel has joined in on the act.
The Brazilian was live on Instagram and was answering a few Arsenal fans’ questions.
One supporter sent him a message saying: “Touch your hair if Bissouma is coming to Arsenal”. You can guess what Gabriel did almost immediately after he read that comment. Watch below!
Gabriel probably didn’t even see the comment and just scratched his head because of an itch. Or, he knows something about Bissouma’s future that we don’t.
Arsenal fans think it’s the latter and that has got all of us excited.
