Arsenal are reportedly interested in Aston Villa striker Ollie Watkins, according to The Sun.
And, as to be expected, a number of Villa fans have been reacting to the rumours on social media.
Watkins admitted himself last year that he is an Arsenal fan after starring in a victory at the Emirates Stadium.
Do you think Watkins would leave for Arsenal?
No, he'd stay at Villa!
Watkins and Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin have been touted as possible options, with Lacazette’s contract up at the end of the season.
Arsenal’s technical director Edu is on the search for a young Premier League goalscorer for the club’s long-term plan, with Watkins and Everton’s number nine both fitting the bill.
Villa fans react
This is what these Villa supporters had to say in reply…
“He’s off. There’s no loyalty. Just ask £80m”
“Surely not! In the same vein isn’t Jack Grealish a Villa fan? Are we not going places?”
“Head turned? Maybe if Barca or Real come in for him…”
“Couldn’t afford him. If they paid £50m for Ben White imagine what it would take ”
“Grealish supports Villa. Look who he’s playing for now. Doesn’t mean anything. Arsenal can’t give him anything he isn’t getting at Villa already. No incentive, no point.”
