Our local Gunners are dancing on the pool tables following reports from France Football that Arsenal have made a DOUBLE enquiry to Leicester City for star duo Riyad Mahrez and N’Golo Kante.

The pair have been in scintillating form this season and their multitude of Herculean exploits helped the Foxes to the most unlikely of title wins.

It was reported earlier this week that the Gunners had targeted Kante, who is believed to have a £20m release clause in his deal, though it is now claimed contact has started over a potential deal for Mahrez.

The Algerian midfielder was crowned PFA Player of the Year earlier this month, after scoring 17 goals and recording 11 assists in what has been a wonderful campaign.

Barcelona, Real Madrid and both Manchester clubs are also believed to be keeping a close on his situation in the East Midlands.

Now, it is claimed that tentative discussions in regards to the former Le Harve playmaker have begun.

Any deal to prize the glittering forward away from the King Power Stadium is likely to be hugely expensive, for a player who cost the club less than £400,000 in 2014.

How much would Mahrez and Kante improve Arsenal?
