Erling Haaland posed in Arsenal kit as child with fans joking ‘he’s coming home’


ARSENAL fans have been sent wild after an old picture of Erling Haaland in a Gunners kit was posted on social media.

The 21-year-old sensation is set to leave Borussia Dortmund in the summer for a bargain £64million.

Manchester City appear to be in pole position for his signature, with Haaland reportedly jetting to Monaco for talks with agent Mino Raiola on Sunday.

But an old photo posted to Twitter by Football.London’s Chris Wheatley has caused quite the stir among Arsenal fans.

In the snap Haaland can be seen wearing a yellow Gunners away kit with matching shorts.

The kit is dated from the 2010-11 season, and was also used as the away kit for the next two campaigns, but it’s unknown when the picture was taken.

Nevertheless some fans have joked it’s a sign that Haaland could be heading to the Emirates this summer.

Especially with the club on the lookout for a striker due to Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah’s impending departures.

One excited supporter wrote on social media: “He’s coming home then.”

Meanwhile another said: “He’s a Gooner through and through.”


Others called for Haaland’s Norway team-mate Martin Odegaard to help get a deal over the line, with one writing: “Agent Odegaard.”

Unfortunately for Arsenal fans, Haaland has also been pictured in various other kits over the years.

Last year the goal machine was spotted wearing Leeds United shorts as he signed fans for autographs.

And the fact some reports suggest Haaland has already agreed a move to Manchester City also dampen Arsenal’s chances of making the signing.
