    There was a picture shared on social media this week which seemed to confirm an Arsenal offer for Hakim Ziyech, but football.london say the bid document was a hoax.

    There were errors on the document which an official page would not have, such as incorrect grammar and the wrong address.

    Arsenal have been linked with a move for the Moroccan, but the document fails to provide confirmation of a summer switch of any sort.

    The Spaniard told Belgian publication HLN, “Playing in China is not an issue for me”.
