According to various reports in the social media today, Arsenal are locked in discussion with Leicester City in regards to two players. These two players are Theo Walcott and Riyad Mahrez. Arsenal are set to be eyeing Riyad Mahrez and Leicester have asked for Theo Walcott in exchange.
Most Arsenal fans are frustrated with the erratic performance of Theo Walcott and won’t mind to see him leave the club and they will certainly welcome Mahrez to the club. The Algerian was hands down the best winger in the Premier League last season which explains why Arsenal fans want him at the club.
Mahrez will surely be a big upgrade on Theo Walcott. His signing, if it happens, will surely be a big statement of intent. It will even be sweeter Mahrez joins and Theo Walcott who earns £140,000 a week but does next to nothing leaves at the same time.
A team consisting of Ozil, Sanchez, Mahrez, Xhaka and maybe Morata and the others will certainly be good enough to win the league. By signing Mahrez and maybe Morata, Wenger would have solved our goal scoring problems.
Mahrez showed last season that he is a prolific goal scorer and creator extraordinaire. His signing will ensure Arsenal’s goal scoring duties will be distributed and not reliance on one or two players like was the case last season.
