Bollywood film star Esha Gupta apparently dropped a huge hint Arsenal are set to announce a new signing in this transfer window.
The actress, who modelled the Gunners’ brand new bright blue kit this week, as part of the club’s advertising campaign, also took part in a brief Instagram live.
During the broadcast, which was watched by hundreds of Arsenal supporters, Gupta spoke fondly about the club and apparently let slip some classified information.
“I’m not sure if I should say the name,” said the film star, while discussing a potential Gunners transfer target.
“But we are signing another player and I’m sure the boss is gonna do well this time.”
Needless to say the jaws of every Arsenal fan dropped to the ground in shock as many began speculating as to who Gupta was referring to.
Could it be Thomas Lemar, or perhaps Riyad Mahrez. And hang on, where exactly did the Bollywood star get this information from?
The answer to the final question remains to be seen, but in terms of who the player could be, her recent comments during an interview with The Times of India may hold a clue.
“I’m a fan and get excited when great players are taken on,” explained the actress, while discussing the Alexandre Lacazette signing.
“Talks are on with Thomas Lemar and I hope he comes on board too. We need good players like him.” Very interesting…
