Arsenal fans believe they’ve spotted new signing Gabriel Magalhaes at the Emirates Stadium.
The Lille defender is expected to be confirmed as a Gunners player imminently after snubbing the likes of Manchester United and Everton.
Magalhaes has been told to quarantine after arriving in the UK at the beginning of the week, following the Government’s 14-day Covid-19 guidance.
However, eagle-eyed Arsenal fans believe they’ve actually spotted the Brazilian at his new home this week.
A grainy photo of an individual stood alongside cameramen on the Emirates turf was shared among north London supporters, with many claiming the person in question looked like Magalhaes.
Arsenal fans are split over who the mystery man is
“Probably announced tomorrow then,” one replied.
“Thats Gabriel’s height and hair line,” said one.
“Looks like there’s some filming going on there,” one noticed.
“It’s definitely Gabriel from the stance and hairline,” another added.

However, some Arsenal supporters have a different theory about who was being filmed on the pitch.
Others think the player is actually Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who is on the cusp of signing a new contract at the club.
The Gabon forward does look slightly similar to Magalhaes, leaving fans to argue over the real identity of the mystery man.
“Kinda looks like Auba,” one said.
“Pretty sure that’s Auba,” another added.
“If that’s actually Auba, extend your contract!!” pleaded a third.

Arsenal are desperate to tie Aubameyang down to a new deal with his current one set to expire next summer.
They are keen on avoiding situations in the past with players such as Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey.
