So reports are surfacing all over Twitter that Barcelona frontman David Villa has been spotted at Heathrow.
I can already hear the sound of keyboards typing uncertain rumours.
Many will simply read between the lines. Arsenal want Villa, he wants Arsenal (so reports claim), and he has flown to London in January. It can surely only mean one thing. Can it?
Don’t get me wrong, I’d be the first carry his bags the moment he stepped off the plane if he was coming to the Emirates, but for now, for the sake of not ending up disappointed, I would suggest that we keep calm about the situation before we all break down and go mental.
It is rumoured that Arsenal are trying to use that fact that Barcelona owe us money from the sales of Cesc Fabregas and Alex Song as a factor in signing the Spaniard.
After breaking his leg, Villa has been limited to a place on the Barca bench for the majority of his comeback, and he came on to play the last 25 minutes of the side’s 4-0 win over Espanyol on Sunday.
It is thought that around £13m could be enough to prise him away from the Nou Camp, and he himself is begging the Barca hierarchy to grant him permission to move to Arsenal.
He would be a fantastic purchase for the Gunners, and seeing as that Barca owe us money, we should have first dibs on him.
