West Ham fans have taken to Twitter to react after seeing what Alphonse Areola uploaded onto Instagram yesterday.

What’s the story?

Interestingly, the 28-year-old posted a photo of a drink and a pastry he’d bought from Panadera Bakery.

So? Well, Panadera Bakery is located in London’s Kentish Town, which adds plenty of juice to the rumours surrounding Areola’s future.

According to the Daily Mail, West Ham are in talks with Paris Saint-Germain over a deal for the 3-cap France international.

Areola spent last season on loan at Fulham, where he made 36 Premier League appearances and kept nine clean sheets.

Now, with Lukasz Fabianski getting on a bit, it seems David Moyes is keen to freshen up his goalkeeping department.

In our view, there’s a good chance of this deal happening.

Mauricio Pochettino’s PSG have recently signed Italy No.1 Gianluigi Donnarumma.

The 22-year-old will compete with another top-class glovesman in Keylor Navas at the Parc des Princes.

In that respect, Areola probably wouldn’t see any action at PSG next season, so he’ll probably be thinking about a move.

The fact he’s already in London is very intriguing.

Has the shot-stopper simply decided to stay here from his stint at Fulham, or has he travelled back to join West Ham?

Only time will tell.

For now, let’s see what the West Ham fans on Twitter have been saying about his Instagram post…
