According to popular Italian website, Calcio Mercato have dropped a huge piece of transfer gossip on Sunday reporting that Leicester City’s Riyad Mahrez is on the verge of signing for Arsenal.
The Algerian international has been linked with a move to Arsenal and was close to signing a deal with the North London club but opted to remain at the King Power Stadium last summer.
The Leicester star made it clear he wanted to leave the King Power after releasing a statement at the end of last season.
And now, two separate reports claim a deal taking him to Arsenal is close to being done.
Freelance reporter and BBC Sport contributor Dale O’Donnell says he has been told there could be an announcement soon.
Also CalcioMercato reports Wenger has given the “ok” to move ahead with the signing, and the transfer will be announced “soon”.
Inconveniently, there’s no mention of how much Arsenal will pay, nor are there any details on Mahrez’s contract.
