Reported Arsenal target Riyad Mahrez scored for Leicester City in their 2-0 win against Watford at the King Power Stadium on Saturday, and Gunners fans have urged their club to sign the winger.
The Mirror reported on Friday that the north London outfit – along with Premier League rivals Liverpool – are interested in the 26-year-old attacker, but Foxes manager Claude Puel has insisted that his player isn’t going anywhere this month.
The French boss will be keen to reiterate that point after one of his star men scored against the Hornets to take his tally for the season to eight goals and eight assists in 24 top flight appearances.
Arsenal supporters were quick to have their say on his latest display via social media, and while one said “Arsenal need to sign Mahrez”, another lavished him with praise by saying that he “reminds me of Pires at his peak”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
