Arsenal could be handed a massive blow as reports claims AS Roma have joined the race in signing Leicester City’s winger Riyad Mahrez.
Rumours linking the Algerian with the Gunners have been swirling for weeks; in truth, the transfer story was alive last summer too, but Mahrez opted to remain at the King Power Stadium to play Champions League football.
The Italian club are looking for a possible long term replacement for Mohamed Salah who joined Liverpool this summer transfer window.
Arsenal, Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea, Everton and Tottenham have all been linked to Mahrez, the Algerian wideman who was the star of that Premier League-winning team.
On Sunday, Corriere dello Sport confidently claim that Roma are closing in on a deal for just 35 million euros. That’s supposedly the lowest Leicester will go, but it’s a considerable price drop on previously mooted figures.
