Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter after The Sun revealed that Harry Kane is close to joining Manchester City from Tottenham in a £160m deal.

What’s the story?

Well, if true, Pep Guardiola is about to obliterate Manchester City’s club-record transfer fee.

Kane looks set to join the Citizens in a deal worth £160m, where he will sign a contract worth an incredible £400,000-a-week.

It’s an astounding amount of money to pay for a 27-year-old with a colourful injury history, specifically regarding his ankles.

However, after a season in which he scored more goals, and provided more assists, than anyone else in the Premier League, he’s arguably worth it.

You might be wondering why this concerns Arsenal fans.

Well, both north London clubs are in the same boat right now. Neither have a manager who the fanbase is 100% convinced over, while Tottenham and Arsenal finished seventh and eighth in the Premier League last season.

Of course, they’re also huge rivals. You may have presumed that Arsenal fans would be revelling at the sight of Tottenham losing Kane.

However, the Emirates Stadium faithful seem quite annoyed.
