HYS: Should Arsenal swoop for Riyad Mahrez?

According to reports from The Telegraph, Riyad Mahrez wants Leicester City to honour their agreement of allowing him to leave at the end of the season, having promised Claudio Ranieri one more year at the King Power Stadium after lifting the Premier League title last summer.

The Algerian international was one of the driving forces behind the Foxes’ shock title win, also winning the PFA Player of the Year award, but has struggled to replicate that form throughout 2016/17, notching up just six goals and three assists in the top flight.

Nonetheless, The Telegraph believe a number of top clubs will still be interested in the 26-year-old, not least including Arsenal and Tottenham – who are both reportedly on the lookout for a wide player.

Arsenal fans could be in particularly need of Mahrez’s services, which Leicester reportedly value at in excess of £30million, amid doubts over Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez’s futures in north London.

So, Arsenal fans, does your club need to beat Tottenham and any other potential suitors to Mahrez’s signature this summer? Let us know by voting below…
