Riyad Mahrez has reportedly told Leicester City he wants to join Arsenal this summer.
Wenger is reportedly interested in Mahrez’s services and has indicated his willingness to table a huge bid for the Algeria international this summer. However, Leicester City are not prepared to sell the player and Claudio Ranieri has publicly stated they won’t entertain any bid for his services.
French Journalist @Ilyesramdani1 now claims Mahrez has told his club he wants to join Arsenal this summer.
The journalist claims the winger has informed Leicester of his desire to leave but he is not prepared to force a move away from the club.
The journalist tweeted:
“Therefore [Mahrez’ expressed his position to the different parts (his wish to sign for Arsenal) but will not force the hand of Leicester.”
“But he absolutely refused to go to the tussle with a club for whom he has a lot of recognition. (And who obviously wishes to him)”
