Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been linked with a move to China in recent days.
Since those rumours started circulating, the Arsenal forward has removed the club from his social media ‘bio’ and decided to scrap his profile picture which displayed him in a Gunners kit.
And it appears three first-team stars have followed suit this morning.
Granit Xhaka, Shkodran Mustafi and Herikh Mkhitaryan also decided to delete mentions of the club from their Instagram accounts.
And Arsenal fans are now speculating as to what the cryptic messages mean.
“Major rebuild coming up. #AFC,” one tweeted.
“This is quite strange,” one said.
“Gutted for Aubameyang but all of the others can leave,” another added.
“Hopefully it’s just a sign they’re announcing the new kits, so a new profile pic,” one suggested.
“We need a full rebuild and Aubameyang doesn’t turn up against good sides. Good riddance,” a fifth wrote.
“Maybe that’s because we’re about to get the Adidas kit,” one speculated.
“Panic stations!” said another.
Arsenal are determined to keep Aubameyang at the club this summer after his fine season in front of goal.
The Gunners forward topped the Premier League Golden Boot chart, along with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, after netting 22 times in the competition this season.
But Arsenal’s failure to qualify for the Champions League once again means Aubameyang could be susceptible from offers elsewhere.
According to the Times, two Chinese clubs are ready to make fresh attempts to land the 29-year-old in the coming weeks.
The publication states both Guangzhou Evergrande and Shanghai SIPG, who have already tried to sign Aubameyang in recent years, are keen to offer the forward £300,000-a-week in the hope of persuading him to leave Europe for the first time in his career.
