Reports from The Sun strongly claims Riyad Mahrez is set to snub Chelsea for Arsenal after deciding he wants to join the Gunners this summer.
The Algerian international revealed earlier this month is wants to move of the King Power Stadium after guiding them in winning the Premier League in the 2015/16 season.
Mahrez was strongly linked with a move to Arsenal last summer before deciding to remain with Leicester and sign a new deal ahead of their maiden voyage in to the Champions League.
The £26million rated star struggled to replicate the kind of form that saw him score 17 goals to help fire the Foxes to a shock title win in 2016 and he’s now set to finally leave the King Power after handing in a written transfer request.
The report further claims the 26-year-old has decided to sign for Arsenal despite the lack of Champions League action as the Gunners finished fifth in the Premier League last season.
Mahrez has already informed Leicester owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha of his decision and Arsenal could get a deal agreed for as little as £26m this summer.
