IS THIS GOODBAY?
Bayern Munich have reportedly turned their attention to Arsenal target Willian after failing to prise Callum Hudson-Odoi from Chelsea last year.
The Bundesliga giants agreed personal terms with the England winger in January 2019, but talks fell apart over the transfer fee.
Hudson-Odoi then signed a new five-year contract worth £100,000 a week in the summer as he committed his future to the club thanks to Frank Lampard's youth revolution.
Now Bayern are set to raid Chelsea for their wingers as they target soon-to-be free agent Willian, according to the Telegraph.
An Arsenalhas mocked rivals Tottenham after comparing empty shelves at a supermarket to Spurs' trophy cabinet.
The British public have been stocking up on household items such as toilet paper, pasta and hand sanitiser should they be quarantined due to coronavirus.
And one Gunners supporter has poked fun at the current crisis by posting a picture of a barren store onto a Reddit thread.
Captioning the post, he quipped: “Went to get some toilet roll and hand sanitizer – got confused and found myself in the Spurs Trophy room.”
Fellow football fans were quick to reply to his joke, as one commented: “A toilet and their trophy room? Are you sure you're not at their stadium?”
Another said: “Clearly fake, there's no Audi Cup there.”
A Tottenham supporter even saw the funny side, as they messaged: “As a Spurs fan. I can tell you, this was better content then entire game against RBL.”
