Of course, the Ukraine international was most likely waiting for a family member or a close friend.

But Arsenal supporters took to social media to state it was a sign that the club are poised to bring in his compatriot Mudryk.

The 21-year-old winger in understood to be on the North London outfit’s radar before the transfer window slams shut on Thursday.

It has been claimed that Mikel Arteta’s side are weighing up a late swoop for the five-cap international to compete with Bukayo Saka.

And fans took it as a sign that Zinchenko, who was injured for Saturday’s 2-1 win against Fulham, was waiting to pick up the exciting youngster.

One user tweeted: “Must be receiving Mudryk.”

Another remarked: “Waiting for Ukrainian Neymar.”

A third added: “He’s waiting on the current Ukrainian starboy to greet.”


This fan then quipped: “He went to pick Mudryk himself? My LB.”

Meanwhile another said: “Low-key could actually be waiting for Mudryk.”

One then stated: “Waiting for his mate Mudryk. Agent Zinnyyyyy.”

After missing out on the victory over the Cottagers over the weekend due a minor knee problem, Zinchenko could return for Wednesday’s home clash against Aston Villa.

And the ex-Manchester City left-back may be deployed in central midfield with both Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny out injured.

Though Arteta could decide to rest Zinchenko as he keeps one eye on Sunday’s trip to face Manchester United at Old Trafford.
