Fans joke Kim Kardashian will slide into Arsenal star's DMs as he is the only player she films during penalty shootout | The Sun
BUKAYO SAKA may have been on the end of a loss on the pitch last night, but fans have cheekily joked he may be in line for a win in his DMs.
Arsenal were knocked out of the Europa League against Sporting CP after Gabriel Martinelli missed his spot-kick in the shootout.
Saka converted his and was also the only player to be filmed by surprise visitor Kim Kardashian.
Kim's appearance at the Emirates left fans baffled.
But it seems the visit was for both leisure and business, with her son Saint West, seven, donning an Arsenal shirt while Kim is also filming a mystery documentary at the North London ground.
The reality TV star took to Instagram during last nights visit and filmed Saint cheering Saka's name as he stepped up to take his penalty.

One user said: "Key takeaway from this game is Kim K recognizes Saka, our starboy is clear!!!"
A second commented: "Kim K snapping Saka penalty and they were saying he isn’t franchise."
"Kim K is a Saka fan I’m leaving with something," remarked a third.
Saka is already in a long-term relationship with Tolami Benson, who is a Gunners fan herself.
However, with the result going the way it did, along with injuries to Takehiro Tomiyasu and William Saliba many fans want Kim to stay away from now on.
This is because of the so-called "Kardashian curse."
