Apparently, ARSENAL found out by mistake that Eddie Nketiah signed a long-term contract extension in the Emirates.
The 23-year-old will leave north London at the end of June when his contract expires.
But judging by pre-season promotional posters, the Gunners seem confident he will play for them in a friendly eight days later.
Arsenal are keen to keep him at the club after finally emerging as a first-team starter at the end of the season.
They are said to have offered the academy graduate a £100,000-a-week contract to continue.
And although the England youth international was initially keen to find new pastures, it is believed he is ready to extend his stay at Arsenal until 2027.
Or maybe he’s already signed on the dotted line.
Nketiah appeared in a social media post previewing Arsenal’s friendly against German club FC Nürnberg on July 8.
The centre-forward was featured on the poster alongside Brazilian duo Gabriel Martinelli, Gabriel Magaelhaes and Martin Odegaard.
Nketiah would currently not be eligible to play against the Bundesliga 2 club as he would be a free agent.
But the fact that he is on the post is a big sign that his future lies with Arsenal.

All that’s left for Arsenal to do now is officially announce the player’s extension.
Arsenal have been keen not to allow Nketiah to leave after Alexandre Lacazette was allowed to leave as he approaches an emotional return to Lyon.
Manchester City ace Gabriel Jesus is believed to be the main target, with Mikel Arteta’s side reportedly making a £43million offer.
A new central midfielder is also believed to be a priority for Arteta, with Leicester’s Youri Tielemans an option.
And the Belgium ace gave Arsenal a boost in chasing him after declaring he is ready to leave the King Power Stadium.
