Arsenal fans are over the moon after reports concerning Red Bull Salzburg man Erling Haaland and a potential move to the north London club.
According to a report in Sport Bild, Haaland and his father Alf-Inge personally visited the club’s London Colney training ground, with the Gunners joining Bayern Munich and Manchester United in registering their interest in the forward.
If reports in The Athletic are to be believed, Haaland’s father has also visited United’s Carrington training ground as the race to secure his services hot up.
The 19-year-old has been nothing short of sensational this season, scoring 26 goals, including five hat-tricks, in just 18 games across all competitions (via Transfermarkt).
He became one of just four players to score in each of his first four Champions League games, joining the likes of Alessandro Del Piero, Diego Costa and Ze Carlos (via Daily Mail).
The rumours of the player and his father visiting the club’s training ground have excited the fans as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:

Lacazette off in Summer. Haaland and Martinelli to succeed Auba in 3 years.

Preparing for the future. Auba and Laca may be our present, but if we get our hands on Håland and have him with Martinelli, potential wise, we will have two monsters at ST. Auba is 31 next year and Laca could land us a hefty fee. Reinvest, Upgrade, and Win. @Arsenal https://t.co/m59oNXdqXM

Hope this is true. We could use someone like him. Perfect Plan B type of player initially like Giroud. Would be a certain starter in a year or two when Auba and Laca start declining.
