Bukayo Saka and Jack Grealish are England teammates at this summer’s European Championships.
But could they be playing their club football alongside each other at some point in the future?
Well, some Arsenal fans will be hoping the answer to that question is an emphatic yes, and as early as next season in a dream scenario, as Grealish is regarded by many as the ideal signing to bolster Mikel Arteta’s first-team squad.
Whether those supporters ever get their wish remains to be seen, although the chances of Grealish arriving at the Emirates Stadium this summer appear slim to none given Aston Villa would reportedly demand £100m.
Still, all hope is not lost.
Whilst that means very little in regards to a potential transfer, an image of the pair from a training session will no doubt send supporters into overdrive.
As seen in the image below, as the England squad gathered around to hear from Gareth Southgate, Grealish can be seen leaning on Saka.
This should come as little surprise as Saka and Grealish’s bond has gone from strength to strength this season.
Not only are they among a host of Premier League players that are part of a Whatsapp group called ‘The Avengers’, they have continued to exchange messages over social media.
The latest of which came after Saka scored his first England goal in their 1-0 win over Austria last Wednesday night as Grealish looked to claim the assist.
The summer window is officially open, and it’s going to be tough to keep up with the comings and goings in and out of the Emirates.

Taking to Instagram to react to his goal, Saka said: “The moment I always dreamt of growing up.”
To which Grealish replied by asking: “Do I get the assist?”
And despite there being little chance of Grealish being credited with the assist as the ball took a few touches and deflections before reaching Saka, the Arsenal youngster responded with a brilliant two-word message.
“Sure bro,” Saka said, with an emoji that suggests he wasn’t being totally honest.
