Erling Haaland posed in Arsenal kit as a kid as Gunners fans joked ‘he’s coming home’ before £51m Man City transfer

ARSENAL fans were sent wild when an old picture of Erling Haaland in a Gunners kit was posted on social media this year.

The 22-year-old sensation left Borussia Dortmund in the summer for a bargain £51million move to champions Manchester City.

Manchester City appeared to always be in pole position for his signature, with Haaland reportedly jetting to Monaco for talks on several occasions before his switch.

But an old photo posted to Arsenal fans.

In the snap Haaland can be seen wearing a yellow Gunners away kit with matching shorts.

The kit is dated from the 2010-11 season, and was also used as the away kit for the next two campaigns, but it’s unknown when the picture was taken.

Nevertheless some fans joked it was a sign that Haaland could have been heading to the Emirates this summer.

But none will be complaining about the addition of Gabriel Jesus instead, with the Brazilian firing Arsenal to the top of the league.

One excited supporter wrote on social media at the time: “He’s coming home then.”

Meanwhile another said: “He’s a Gooner through and through.”


Others called for Haaland’s Norway team-mate Martin Odegaard to help get a deal over the line, with one writing: “Agent Odegaard.”

Unfortunately for Arsenal fans, Haaland did end up opting for Man City instead.

He’s scored an incredible 22 goals in just 16 games under Pep Guardiola.

And if wearing a shirt was anything to go by, last year the goal machine was spotted wearing Leeds United shorts as he signed fans for autographs.
