Welcome to “Football fans are weird, part 3736282”.
As you might know already, Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is on the verge of a £40m move to Chelsea , with the two clubs having agreed a fee and the Blues hoping to nip in ahead of Liverpool to tie up a deal.
With Oxlade-Chamberlain clearly feeling that he needs to start a new chapter in his career after seven years, and Arsenal hardly setting the world alight at the moment, plenty see the switch as a logical one for the player and both clubs.
But some Arsenal fans have taken to trolling Oxlade-Chamberlain’s pop star girlfriend Perrie Edwards ahead of the move.
The Little Mix star is getting snake emojis plastered all over the comments section of plenty of her Instagram posts, especially those featuring her boyfriend.
Comments such as “you’re dating a snake” regularly appear from angry supporters, and there are also comments targeting Perrie with personal abuse.
Fans of the star have been hitting back though, with one comment from a user called “besideperrie” saying: “what the hell is wrong with some people? Perrie is not the reason that Alex leaves Arsenal, this is his choice and you should have some respect.”
Oxlade-Chamberlain’s move should be completed before the closure of the transfer deadline on Thursday.
