Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly interested in signing Yannick Bolasie from Crystal Palace this month.
According to a recent report in The Mirror, having sold striker Roberto Soldado to Spanish club Villarreal, Tottenham will now make a move for the 26-year-old DR Congo international.
The prospect of watching the highly-rated former Plymouth Argyle star in a Spurs shirt must be exciting for the fans, but they should also be aware that he is an Arsenal fan.
Back in September 2011 when he was playing for Bristol City, Bolasie made the following post on social networking site Twitter.
The tweet clearly shows the 26-year-old winger to be a fan of the Gunners, Tottenham’s bitter North London rivals.
come on arsenal lets kick start season here! inwengerwetrust!— Yannick Bolasie (@YannickBolasie) September 17, 2011
Should Bolasie’s allegiance to Arsenal affect Tottenham fans in any way? Probably not.
After all, Bolasie is a professional, and if he joins Spurs, then he is certainly going to give his all for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
