Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez shone in his side’s 5-4 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur on the final day of the Premier League season at Wembley on Sunday, and Arsenal fans have urged their club to sign the attacker, rated at £60m according to the Daily Mail, this summer.
It has been another impressive campaign for the Algeria international, who destroyed Spurs left-back Danny Rose with one goal and two assists for the Foxes, meaning he ended the season with 12 goals and a further 11 assists in 36 top flight appearances.
Meanwhile, the Gunners could be set for a big summer of change in terms of personnel with a new manager on the way, and one of the areas they perhaps need to look at strengthening is out wide, with the Emirates Stadium faithful certainly impressed with what they have seen from Mahrez.
Arsenal supporters, who are fed up with one of their 27-year-old stars following his showing in the win at Huddersfield, were quick to have their say on Mahrez’s latest display via social media, and while one said that if they did sign him “our attack would be insane”, another said “imagine Mahrez instead of Iwobi”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Arsenal could do with the likes of Mahrez, our attack would be insane https://t.co/mqToGPLct0
