Arsenal could sign Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez in the next few days, according to reports.
The Foxes winger has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates since the end of last season and it appears the player is now closing in on a move to the Emirates.
According to Football talk, Arsenal have already opened talks with Leicester City over signing the winger and discussions are expected to continue with a view of reaching an agreement in the next couple of days.
The Premier League Champions have been trying the convince the winger to stay at the club this season, the club owners even tried to intervene in the situation but Mahrez informed them of his desire to move to the Emirates.
The player has already set his heart on a move to Arsenal and has agreed personal terms with the club.
It is expected that the move will cost the Gunners £37m, a fee which wouldn’t be too much for a player of his quality.
Arsenal are in dire need of attacking reinforcements and there is no better way of fixing that than singing a player who was arguably the best player in the league last season.
Mahrez scored 17 goals and provided 11 assists for his teammates last season and would considerably strengthen our squad.
