Arsenal have been boosted by the news that Riyad Mahrez is set to leave Leicester City this summer.
The Algerian international has been linked with a move away from the King Power Stadium since the end of last season and the Emirates has been touted as one of his potential destination.
According to the Sun Mahrez has rejected a contract extension at Leicester City and has set his sight on a move away from the club.
Mahrez’ exit will come as a big blow to Leicester City who have already lost N’golo Kante to Chelsea.
The PFA player of last season was a key part of Leicester City squad and would definitely have plenty of suitors.
According to the report, Arsenal have been boosted by the news that the player is interested in changing clubs this summer and would now make a move to sign the playmaker but could face competition from PSG and Barcelona.
It is believed the player would cost as much as £30m, a fee which would be a bargain for a player of his quality.
With Wenger reportedly in search of attacking reinforcements, signing Mahrez would be a solid addition to our squad and would send a statement of intent to our rivals.
