Gunners fans here in the bar at the Football Transfer Tavern have asked us to put the champagne on ice this afternoon as news has made it’s way to the bar from France that has raised their spirits through the ceiling!
Reports from Le Buteur are stating that Arsenal will finalise a £37.1m deal for Premier League champion, Riyad Mahrez, within the next 48 hours.
The Algerian website are claiming they have information from a ‘British journalist’ that last season’s PFA Player of the Year is on the verge of making the move to North London.
The reports also suggest that despite the Foxes’ attempts to persuade the winger, who scored a remarkable 17 goals in the Premier League last season, to sign a new contract are in vain as he has already made his decision that he wants to join the Gunners.
Leicester club officials reportedly met in Los Angeles this week in order to try and clear up the future of the Algerian international amid the interest from Arsene Wenger.
Arsenal fans, we want to hear from you! How good would Mahrez be in your side? Do you think this deal will actually go through? Let us know below…
