Anderlecht posted a farewell message to Albert Sambi Lokonga as he prepares to complete a move to Arsenal, and then they deleted it.
On Monday morning, the official Twitter of RSC Anderlecht wrote.

Lokonga arrived in London a week ago, but he had to undergo a period of isolation before he could join the squad.
Then there were the problems at London Colney, but now he finally seems to be close to his official transfer.
Arsenal and Anderlecht reached an agreement for a fee of €17.5m, rising to as much as €22m with potential bonuses.
The player will sign a five-year deal until 2026.
