Despite having a massive transfer war-chest of over 200million Pounds, Arsenal are yet to spend big on another player bar the signing of Granit Xhaka.
However, for those fans that are really expecting to see another quality player added to Arsenal’s rank, they can be excited as reports have claimed that prime transfer target Riyad Mahrez has agreed personal terms with Arsenal.
The 25-year-old skillful winger is expected to complete a 37million Pounds move in the coming days. This is according to Algerian Outlet Le Buteur. Mahrez has emerged as a key target for Arsene Wenger after scoring 17 goals as well as providing 10 assists to help Leicester march towards a shock Premier League title win last season.
The report claims Mahrez is keen on moving to the Emirates as his agent Kamel Bengougam and Arsene Wenger has already met and concluded on the proposed deal.
The stumbling block for Arsenal has been Leicester City’s manager Claudio Raniery who is wary of losing another key player. Raniery is of the opinion that Mahrez will not play regularly at Arsenal, hence, not a good idea for the player to move.
