Arsenal fans devastated as Gabriel or Aubameyang ‘announcement video’ filmed at Emirates turns out to be rapper

ARSENAL fans have been left majorly underwhelmed after a supposed "announcement video" being filmed at the Emirates turned out to be nothing of the sort.

Gunners supporters continue to wait anxiously on both the arrival of £27million defender Gabriel Magalhaes and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's contract extension.

But they thought the wait was finally over when a fan sparked huge excitement during a stadium tour.

He filmed an unknown figure standing in front of a camera on the Emirates pitch while wearing the new Arsenal away shirt.

Uploading the footage to Reddit, he captioned it: "I'm on a stadium tour and they're filming Aubameyang in the new away kit.

"New contract incoming."

But after a string of detective work on Twitter, fans finally realised the man was, in fact, a rapper called Yizzy filming a music video.

Yizzy later confirmed their disappointment with a selfie on Instagram of himself inside the Emirates.

He then took to Twitter to joke: "If you wanna know whether Aubameyang has signed or not. Go pre-order my song Thierry Henry."

Fans couldn't hide their disappointment with one writing: "I can't believe you've done this."

Another added: "You have got to be f****** kidding me."

A third said: "Yizzy chose the worst possible time."

However, some fans were delighted with the video, one writing the song was "cold" while another added that the whole stunt was "hilarious"

Arsenal are expected to announce Magalhaes' arrival imminently on a five-year deal after beating Manchester United to his signature.

Meanwhile Aubameyang is closing in on a new £250,000-a-week contract extention.

The 31-year-old club captain's current contract expires next summer but Arsenal feel confident they'll keep the striker for the foreseeable future.
