Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have ordered a round in to celebrate the fact they sit top of the Premier League for the New Year and another set of drinks has been ordered to celebrate this particular transfer report.
Mahrez, along with striker Jamie Vardy, has been the reason for Leicester’s success this season as currently sit level on points with Arsenal- losing just twice this season, against the Gunners and Liverpool.
With 14 goals from the wing so far this season, Mahrez has been in excellent form and the Foxes will be reluctant to lose their key-man. However, it’s expected that the African star will move on at the end of the current campaign.
If Arsenal can tempt Leicester into a sale in the New Year it would be a tremendous coup for Arsene Wenger’s side, potentially providing them with the catalyst to beat the Foxes and Manchester City to the Premier League title.
