Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are rubbing their hands in anticipation this afternoon and our chef was disappointed to hear that it wasn’t whilst they wait for their food orders- but instead it’s down to massive transfer news.
The Daily Mirror state Arsenal are readying a summer move for Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez, who has taken the Premier League by storm this weekend to put the Foxes on course for a surprise title victory.
Interest in Leicester’s star players is high and the Midlands-based club have accepted the departure of Algerian international Mahrez, who is also a target for the likes of Barcelona and Chelsea.
A move abroad could be a possibility but with Barcelona already boasting Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez, staying in the Premier League seems a more favourable option and Arsenal would be favourites ahead of Chelsea due to their likely Champions League spot.
Our landlord genuinely believes Mahrez could be the final piece in Arsenal’s jigsaw puzzle, stating the Gunners are on the verge of assembling a side that can dominate English football.
Arsenal fans, is Mahrez the dream addition? Let us know in the comments below!
