Wow! Arsenal Turned Their Focus To This Borussia Dortmund Star Over Riyad Mahrez

The Gunners have been linked with a double transfer move from Leicester City, regarding Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez. While Jamie Vardy has already been offered a deal to move to the Emirates, Riyad Mahrez is yet to be approached.

However, according to the reports by ESPN, the Gunners have put all their efforts in bringing in Borussia Dortmund player Henrikh Mkhitaryan into the Emirates this summer and Mahrez is the back-up plan if Arsenal are not able to acquire Mkhitaryan’s signature.

Reports suggest that the Gunners manager Arsene Wenger may be keeping close tabs on Mahrez, but his first priority will be Borussia Dortmund star Mkhitaryan, who scored 23 goals and provided 32 assists for Dortmund last season. The Armenian player is set to step into the last year of his contract at the German club and as such has refused to sign a new contract.

The Gunners have been widely linked with the £27.5m rated player, and are reportedly the favorites among the clubs looking to sign the player.
