There have been clamours by pundits and the fans of Arsenal to reinforce the attack and defense of the team. Wenger seem to have been persuaded by the yearnings of the club’s supporters with various reports claiming that Arsenal will unveil one or two players this week.
Yesterday, the Premier League defending Champions Leicester City had a poor start as they lost 2-1 to Hull City – the result of their lose was reports on Riyad Mahrez unhappiness and desire to move to the Emirates.
Earlier in the week, Arsenal reportedly saw an offer of £30 million rebuffed for the player and L’Equipe now claims the Gunners are yet unrelenting as they have launched a fresh bid of 35million Pounds for the winger.
L’Equipe via Teamtalk insist that we have now submitted an improved bid for the Algerian, who we believe wants a move to the Emirates.
The Gunners were reportedly set to end their interest in the Leicester playmaker, who looked set to remain at the King Power Stadium for another season but the Algerian is in the want of a move to the Emirates.
He earlier rejected contract talks with Leicester City that was meant to keep him at the club for a long period. Leicester City manager, Claudio Raniery wants the player to stay put at the club for this season.
Leicester are hoping to sign former Feyenoord winger Liandro Martis who has been on trial at the club, with the player drawing comparisons with reigning Player of the Year, Mahrez.
He had a superb season with Leicester last season, helping them win the title with 17goals and 11 assist in the Premier League. He has also drawn interest from Barcelona and Chelsea.
