A handful of players have been linked with moves to the London Stadium, and according to a club insider, three could come through the welcome gates next week.

ExWHUemployee is widely regarded as a reliable source, and on Saturday it was claimed that Jack Wilshere, Andriy Yarmolenko and Fabian Balbuena could all sign on the dotted line in the next few days.

Wilshere is expected to join on a free transfer after ending his 17-year spell at Arsenal following the expiration of his contract.

Yarmolenko is believed to be on the verge of signing from Borussia Dortmund after the winger struggled to impress in his first season at the Bundesliga outfit, where he scored six goals in 26 outings.

Balbuena is expected to round off next week’s transfer activity as he is reportedly poised to join from Corinthians.

After ExWHUemployee posted the tweet, fans gave their reactions, and there were split views.
