In the wake of another tragic title tilt, Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been viewing their pint glasses as half empty for a while now. However, reports emanating out of France could see the Gunners faithful down those drinks and order another few in joyous celebration.
That’s because Le 10 Sport claim the North London giants are preparing a concrete offer for Leicester City sensation Riyad Mahrez in the coming weeks.
The Algerian has been one of the players of the season and is up for the PFA Player of the Year gong as a result of his stunning form as the Foxes charge to what would be the most unlikely of title wins in English football.
16 goals and 11 assists in his 31 Premier League games have seen him propelled to the forefront of the continental game.
As a result, the Gunners are said to be ready to make an offer for the 24-year old as they bid to refresh their squad following yet another season falling away from title contention.
Such is the nature of his barnstorming form, Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona are believed to be monitoring the former Le Havre man’s situation at the King Power Stadium.
Do Arsenal really have any hope at all of landing Riyad Mahrez this summer?
