Nolito has been heavily linked with a move away from Celta Vigo ahead of the January transfer window, with Arsenal apparently leading the race for his signature. The Spaniard now looks to have dropped a massive hint about where his future lies, by liking a transfer story about his potential switch to North London on Instagram, as reported by the Metro.
The 29-year-old has been linked mostly with Barcelona and Arsenal in recent weeks, with financial issues seeing us become front-runners. The report suggests we are ready to triple his wages, with Arsene Wenger desperate to beat the Catalan giants to his signature.
The post suggested we were ready to meet the star striker’s £12.6m release clause this January, and that a deal has been agreed.
Obviously this proves nothing, but it certainly lends some truth to the rumours. Social media is often where news breaks first, and this could be a case of just that.

There would arguably be plenty of better options available, but with Arsene Wenger’s frugal nature Nolito may appeal to the French manager.
