Arsenal fans are desperate to see Kai Havertz sign for the club after he spoke to Sky in Germany, refusing to rule out a move away from Bayer Leverkusen (Sky Germany via The Metro).
The north London giants are one of a host of clubs interested in signing the star, with Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester City, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Barcelona also said to be interested.
Indeed, the Germany international enjoyed a brilliant campaign with Leverkusen last season, scoring 20 goals in all competitions. The 20-year-old has started this season in a similar vein, scoring in the opening league game against SC Paderborn and in the German cup.
It is thought the German club are confident of fetching a similar fee to the £113m Benfica collected for young star Joao Felix.
Fans seemed to be giddy with excitement at the thought of signing the playmaker, as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:
