You know it's a bad day when an international airport starts trolling you.

But that's exactly what's happened to Arsenal, with Heathrow Airport mocking the Gunners on their official Twitter account.

They've gone as far as to map out the journey across London to the Emirates Stadium, but they aren't holding their breath over a striker landing on their tarmac.

Chelsea haven't escaped the clutches of the London airport either, with Heathrow teasing the possibility of a panic buy arriving in London via their gates.

We’ve planned the journey from #Heathrow to the Emirates for @Arsenal’s new striker…if one ever arrives #DeadlineDay http://t.co/YFyMVzt90Z

Reading defender Michael Hector might be that panic buy, per the Daily Mail, but he won't need a plane to get from the Madejski Stadium to Stamford Bridge.
