Arsenal and Chelsea hopes of stellar signing left in ruins

Leicester fans in the Football Transfer Tavern have been poking fun at our Arsenal and Chelsea regulars as news has made it’s way through our doors that will get them very excited.

According to reports from The Guardian, Leicester City hero, Riyad Mahrez has accepted that he will not be leaving the King Power in this transfer window.

The Algerian star had been linked with moves to both Arsenal and Chelsea, however it appears that after talks with the powers that be within the club, last season’s PFA Player of the Year will stay.

Having already lost N’Golo Kante to Antonio Conte’s side the Foxes were desperate to hold onto the man that led their charge to the Premier League title last season.

Our Landlord has pointed out that even though the London club’s are missing out on a very good player, it is not the biggest blow an attacking midfielder is not a top priority, with the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Messut Ozil, Eden Hazard and Willian at The Emirates and Stamford Bridge respectively.

What do we make of this the Leicester fans? How big of a boost is it that Mahrez has accepted he will stay? Let us know in the comments below…
