Reports broke out that Arsenal will finalise a deal for Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez this week.
Now reports making the round suggest the rumour of Mahrez to Arsenal may be true as the Algerian international has failed to show up in today’s preseason training fueling speculation about his potential move to Arsenal.
The club have given Mahrez some extra time off after his international exploits with Algeria last month according to our colleagues at the Leicester Mercury, but that will not dampen the rumours about any move.
The 26-year old has already made it quite clear that he expects to move on from the King Power Stadium this summer and we know that Arsene Wenger is a fan as he tried last summer to sign him.
Mahrez began the summer by handing in a transfer request to Leicester after the Foxes failed to defend their Premier League title and finished 49 points behind champions Chelsea in 12th place.
