Victor Anichebe has claimed he is on his way to Arsenal on Twitter, sending shockwaves through social media.
The striker is currently out of contract, having left West Bromwich Albion at the end of the previous term, and has been on the lookout for a new club ever since.
The 28 year-old has now claimed that he is on his way to the Emirates, leading to mass speculation that he could be set to join the club this summer.

The former Everton man is not restricted by the 11PM deadline however, due to being out of contract, and there would be no need to rush through the deal, should one happen.
Anichebe has scored a measly 24 league goals in his 186 appearances so far in his career with Everton and West Bromwich Albion combined, and hardly boasts any kind of record which would warrant a move to our big club.
I am telling myself he is on a wind-up, with his arrival bringing nothing to our club.
Kelechi Nwakali joined our club this summer, and as a fellow Nigerian, he could have proved some sort of link, but he has already left us on loan, leaving me completely baffled as to why there would be any kind of reason why he would be coming to the Emirates.
I am assuming he has allowed one of his friends access to his Twitter account for a laugh, but stranger things has happened I suppose…
Does anyone believe there could be any truth in his tweet? Could Wenger really have seen some kind of use for him within our squad?
