Arsenal fans think 'agent Saka' has hinted at Declan Rice transfer, others aren't convinced

Bukayo Saka left a comment on Declan Rice's Instagram post in the aftermath of England's convincing 7-0 win against North Macedonia – and it's got Arsenal fans talking.

Rice has been heavily linked with a big money money to the Gunners of late. In fact, Mikel Arteta's side have already had a bid of £80 million plus £10 million in add-ons rejected by West Ham, according to Football London.

The 24-year-old midfielder, who helped his side lift the Europa Conference League earlier this month following a win over Fiorentina, is said to be Arsenal's priority signing this summer.

And after being involved in England's European Championship win on Monday night, tongues were sent wagging again when winger Bukayo Saka left a comment on Rice's Instagram post.

Rice posted a selfie with Saka, who scored a brace at Old Trafford, alongside the caption: "Unbelievable way to end the season! @bukayosaka87 on [three fire emojis].

Soon after, Saka replied to the post with two heart emojis – one red and one white.

Many Arsenal fans on social media jumped to conclusions after spotting the message. One said: "Lol Saka just leaked it. He’s coming," while another commented: "He’s 100% coming to the carpet now. Saka just confirmed it."

A third wrote: "IT'S A SIGN!!! IT'S A SIGN!!!"

A fourth added: "I mean red and white...if that isn't a sign that Declan is a gooner than I don't know what is. This is the most confident I feel about Arsenal signing a player that has not been official yet."

 Although some Arsenal fans were convinced it was a so-called sign, others played down the comment.

One wrote: "Coming from an Arsenal fan, the colour of England's flag is literally also red and white," while another commented: "Ignoring the fact that those are the English flag colours rice is coming to Arsenal."

A third added: "Exciting stuff but are we forgetting what colour the england flag is."

Last week, it was reported that Arsenal could be 'blown out of the water' by Premier League champions Manchester City in their attempts to sign Declan Rice this summer.

The Guardian claim West Ham anticipate Pep Guardiola's side to enter the bidding for Rice, who has a preference to remain in London. That being said, City's expected interest could 'complicate' matters.
