Riyad Mahrez's Arsenal move to be done 'soon'

Troy Deeney battles with Wes Morgan last season

The 26-year-old showed he hadn't forgotten his roots as he kicked about a ball in a modest neighbourhood while chatting to neighbours and passed by local children.

The 26-year old has always been linked with a move to North London. The Algeria global played a key role in the Foxes' title win in 2016, scoring 18 goals across all competitions. I feel vast pride to have been a part of what we have achieved during my time at the club, culminating in becoming Premier League champions.

"However, I am fiercely ambitious and feel that now is the time to move on to a new experience".

It is believed that Mahrez would cost the Gunners around £35 million, but the club won't mind paying the amount, especially when one of their stars, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, has signaled to leave the Emirates this summer.


However, Mahrez has proven his quality in England and has also made it clear that he would like a move away from the King Power Stadium this summer.

Mahrez's departure leaves a wide open gap in the team, but with a considerable fee coming through, Craig Shakespeare can finally turn his attention to the market to bag a suitable replacement.

Alexis Sanchez, Kylian Mbappe, Alvaro Morata and Alexandre Lacazette are just a handful of big-name players tipped for a move this summer, with the likes of Jose Mourinho, Arsene Wenger and Antonio Conte all eager to bolster their squads ahead of the new season.
