The Mirror are reporting Arsenal have been handed a massive boost in the pursuit of Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez after he rejected a new deal and Barcelona ruled out a swoop for the £35m-rated attacking midfielder.
Mahrez was one of the best performers in the league last season scoring 17 goals and providing 11 assists as he helped the Foxes clinch the Premier League title while being crowned as the PFA player of the year in the process.
Wenger is said to be very keen on signing the player who he reportedly missed out on before his move to Leicester City and has earmarked the right winger as one of his top targets this summer.
Mahrez apparently wants to join a ‘big European engine’ and it is rumoured he fancy a move to Arsenal as he has no intention on renewing his contract which runs out until 2019.
