Lyon forward Memphis Depay may have raised one or two eyebrows with a post on social media involving Arsenal transfer target Houssem Aouar.

The Gunners have been linked strongly with Aouar by Sky Sports and others, with the Frenchman looking like the kind of talent Lyon could struggle to hold onto.

The Ligue 1 side tend to sell their best players most years, and Depay has now been spotted posting this message to Aouar with a broken heart emoji…

It’s increasingly common for transfer rumours to be fuelled by posts like this, so it will be interesting to see if it amounts to anything in the coming days.
