According to report by theloosecannon, Arsenal are favourite to sign PFA player of the season Riyad Mahrez despite Chelsea’s late interest in the player.
Arsenal fans went agog as news emerged last week that the silky left footer was close to becoming a gunner after agreeing personal terms with the London club. However, the deal did is yet to be completed and Chelsea are understood to also be in his chase.
Despite having most fluid and productive midfielders, Arsenal lost the Premier League title last seaon due to impotent fire power upfront. With Welbeck out until atleast the winter, Arsene Wenger is left with no choice than to reinforce his attack.
Although, Mahrez is not an out-and-out striker, his presence on the wing for Arsenal would compliment for the striking position.
The report further stated that the 25-year-old Algerian would fancy a move to Arsenal following their fluid style and football ideology. Should this report be true, Mahrez will no doubt improve the attack line of Arsenal with the likes of Ozil.
