A group of Arsenal fans begged Wesley Fofana to join their club instead of Chelsea, with the defender on the verge of a world record fee to the Blues, as you can see in the video below.

The highly rated centre back is wanted by Chelsea, after they missed out on signing Jules Kounde from Sevilla, with Barcelona signing him instead.

Leicester are currently demanding that their fellow Premier League side pay more for the 21-year-old than Manchester United did for Harry Maguire.

However, a group of Arsenal fans clearly don’t want to see the Frenchman move to west London and instead hope he goes to the Emirates in the near future.

“Don’t go Chelsea, whatever you do in your career,” one fan exclaims, before another adds, “You’re gonna wait for Arsenal.”

Fans were also treated to a brilliant performance from Gabriel Jesus, who scored his first two goals since his move from Manchester City in the summer.
