Done Deal + Picture Proof: Riyad Mahrez And Agent Arrives London To Sign For Club

After failing to sign any outfield player in the transfer window of the previous year and failing woefully for the 12th consecutive season to win the Premier League, you would expect Arsene Wenger to be more pragmatic in his transfer dealings this summer. Alas, that has not been the case and the fans are exasperated.

Wenger completed the signing of Xhaka from Monchengladbach on time and we thought he was going to also reinforce his defence and attack to make them bed into the team before the League starts. All we have seen are rumours and it appears we are not genuinely interested in  those targets.

According to reports by Italian journalist @AlensandroLdn, Arsenal target Riyad Mahrez was sighted at Chelsea’s official hotel. The journalist claims he was there to interview Chelsea’s manager Antoine Conte and he spotted the Algerian . The journalist said he was told that Chelsea are trying to sign the player.

Arsenal have been linked with a move for the Premier League player of the season but have been unable to pull any deal for the skillful player. Although, we cannot ascertain the veracity of this reports but the pictures are tempting.

If Chelsea signs the player, questions will be raised over Wenger’s senility and sincerity to do transfers as he has always admitted.

He claims the club has money to spend yet we don’t see transfers as we ought to. He claims there are no attacking players, yet other clubs are signing the players. He claims he knows it all, yet he the Premier League has eluded him.
