Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern were excited to hear that a Premier League star could be open to a north London switch this summer, following the latest comments.
“It is flattering to hear, as I said nothing is agreed, nothing is done. We will see. For the moment I have not made a decision. We will see. It is possible that I stay, it is possible that I leave. We will see.”
Mahrez was awarded PFA Player of the Year for his performances with Leicester this season, who lifted the Premier League crown, and the Algerian has been linked with a host of clubs this summer. However, he insisted he’s happy with the Foxes.
“The season went very well. As you know, we have won the league which was very important. It is incredible. It was by far my best season in my career. I am not putting pressure on myself (for next season). It will be a season about confirming (my ability). ”
“Without pressure, I will have to work hard… Leicester is a family club. I would like to stay. I am very happy.”
Our landlord isn’t convinced by the player’s comments though and believes the African ace will leave, particularly if Jamie Vardy and N’Golo Kante find themselves on the way out.
Would Mahrez be a signing to win Arsenal the Premier League? Let us know in the comments below!
