Rachid-Ghezzal-792405

Official! Arsenal agree yet another £65k-a-week deal for new “Mahrez”

The winter transfer window is gradually winding down, and so we expect more transfer reports linked to Arsenal.

Arsenal have reignited interest in Ligue One star Rachid Ghezzal, this is according to reports.

French outlet Foot Mercato say the Gunners are keen on the 24-year-old Lyon winger who set the top flight alight last term.

Ghezzal struggled to break into Lyon’s first team for years but made a big impact last season and is out of contract in the summer.

Lyon are not interested in selling the player and have offered him a wage increase worth £65,000-a-week.

Because his contract is in its final six months he is free to discuss terms with clubs from outside of France about a free transfer in the summer.

And Arsenal are said to be one of those clubs in contact.

However, they are not alone and Atletico Madrid, Valencia, Monaco, AC Milan and Everton are also named as having held talks with his agent.
