Arsenal fans went into meltdown on transfer deadline day after one supporter posted details of a flight from Lyon to London.
Lyon star Houssem Aouar has been linked with a move from the Ligue 1 side to the Gunners though a deal appeared dead following a deadline from the French outfit.
That was for Friday but Arsenal fans were still hopeful a deal could be done as the clock ticked nearer to 11pm on Monday.
Memphis Depay’s future was plunged into doubt with Barcelona having been interested in the Dutch star. And fans thought that could also see Aouar depart Lyon.
And once a plane making the trip from the French city to the English capital was spotted, Gunners supporters were sent into a frenzy.
One put: “The scenes when Arsenal announce Aouar and Partey together…”
Another added: “I need Aouar on the arsenal man, one of my fav players on earth rn”.
And a third posted: “If Don Edu gets a deal for Aouar done tonight he may just deserve a statue outside the Emirates.”

Aouar had opened up on staying at Lyon when saying: "I felt that I could still bring things to this team and the club, the club that raised me, quite simply.”
Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had urged Aouar to make the switch to the Gunners last month.
He had said: “He's a very good player.
“I hope we will be lucky to have these types of players at the club, I'm sure he can bring a lot to us.
“I hope he will come even though he is at Lyon.”
