One question that readily comes to the minds of Arsenal fans would be, why do Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United succeeds in signing their transfer target and Arsenal does not.
The transfer market is one thing that somewhat determines the success or failure of a team. This transfer window has become more arduous for the fans of Arsenal than than envisaged.
Reports emanating from the KingPower Stadium says Leicester City will not sell their star player Riyad Mahrez to Arsenal, stating that the player will remain with the Premier league holders for at least this season.
The Algerian superstar has been the subject of intense interest this summer with Arsenal and Chelsea on his trail.
Ranieri has insisted all along that Mahrez will stay but various reports have contradicted that stance.
“He stays with us. We wanted to keep all our players.
“Of course, Kante had a [release] clause and Chelsea paid it but Riyad does not have the clause and he will stay with us.”
News emerged yesterday that Mahrez wants a move to Arsenal but this comment by Ranieri has been dubbed as the final verdict on the transfer of the player and a huge blow to Arsenal.
