When it comes to transfer related news, one of the most reliable outlets out there is the TIMES. The TIMES have a reputation for being almost spot on with the transfer rumours. This time, they are reporting Arsenal target Riyad Mahrez has been talking to people he is on his way to Arsenal this summer.
The Algerian who scored 11 goals and created 17 assists for his team mates last season has been linked with a move to PSG but he has said he doesn’t want a move back to France. He has also been linked with a move to Chelsea and Manchester United but Arsenal have a massive advantage for the duo due to their lack of Champions league football.
And if Arsenal manages to get Jamie Vardy, which is looking increasingly likely considering Leicester City appear to be moving for strikers, then Arsenal will have a better chance of signing the Algerian. Wenger is said to have made with Mahrez’s agent in France. And with the player now reportedly telling his friends he will be on the move this summer, it seems it is safe to assume personal terms have been agreed.
Mahrez reportedly has a release clause that is rumoured to be put at £25 million which means a deal won’t be that difficult to do especially as the player seems keen on leaving the Leicester stadium this summer.
