Kim Kardashian has continued her north London football connection, by meeting up with Dele Alli, a day after taking in an Arsenal game.
Writers on this website would never have expected to write about Kardashian quite so much, but she was one of the main attractions as Arsenal were knocked out of the Europa League on Thursday night.
Sure, Pedro Goncalves may have scored the Puskas Award winner for 2023 but who amongst us can’t say that the most famous of the Kardashian family being present at the Emirates wasn’t the most important part of the evening.
It’s all down to her second child, Saint, aged seven, who is a huge fan of the Gunners and, in a lovely addition, was wearing an Arsenal shirt with Arsenal Women’s striker Katie McCabe’s name and number on the back, whilst his friend wore Vivien Miedema on his shirt.
The social media influencer, and billionaire, has been on a tour of London, as spotted by her Instagram story, taking in a West End musical and enjoying St Patrick’s Day with some Guinness.
She was also seen on FaceTime with Arsenal star Bukayo Saka, just to continue the very Arsenal heavy nature of her trip to England’s captial.
But they’re not the only north London club she has a connection with, as the 42-year-old shared a picture of her son, and his friends, with former Tottenham Hotspur star Dele Alli.
Seeing some adoring fans might have just been the pick me up that the 26-year-old needed, after the latest in a long line of tough weeks in his career.
Having wowed people as a young player, the midfielder’s form has fallen off a cliff in recent years and he first found himself at Everton, having dropped from the Spurs first team, before heading out on loan to Besiktas this season.
Things have not gone well in Turkey for him and this week he was banished from the Super Lig’s first team and told to train with the reserves.
He is now expected to have his contract ripped up by Everton when he returns to Goodison Park at the end of the campaign, with his loan club highly unlikely to make his move permanent.
The England international, who hasn’t played for Gareth Southgate’s side since 2019, would cost the Toffees money if he were to make too many more appearances for them, and if he has no long term future there then they wouldn’t want that to happen.
There could be some good news for him, with two Italian teams reportedly interested in signing him in the summer, once he is a free agent.
Until then, he’ll just have to make do with meeting Kim Kardashian, it’s a strange world we live in sometimes…
