With the transfer window edging closer, news agencies across Europe are working overtime to ensure they grab the bragging rights to exclusive transfer news. After being linked with a number of top clubs in England, the Daily Mail have now reported that Arsenal have set their sights on the magical Riyad Mahrez of Leicester City.
Chasing their first Premier League title in just over a decade, the Gunners want to bring Mahrez to the Emirates to add to the attacking muscle of the team.
The Algerian has already bagged 14 goals and 7 assists and has been pivotal to Leicester’s rise to the top of the Premier League table alongside Jamie Vardy. However, it remains to be seen if he prefers a move away from King Power Stadium at a time when European ambitions, if not title ambitions, do look realistic for the Foxes. With Manchester United and Chelsea also said to be interested in the £25m rated Algerian, we could be subject to a bidding war from between the big names of English football.
