With Riyad Mahrez’s proposed move to Barcelona all but off-the-table, Arsenal are set to take advantage of the situation and add the Algerian to their ranks this summer.
The 26-year-old has seen his odds of a move to the Emirates this summer slashed from 9/2 to just 10/11. However, if the former Le Havre man doesn’t head to North London before the window closes, that’s likely to mean Leicester have kept onto him.
In fact, our odds-crunchers are no longer pricing up anyone other than Arsene Wenger’s men to snap up the talented winger, with previously linked clubs like Barca and Paris Saint-Germain now set to look elsewhere for their summer targets.
Despite a difficult campaign for the Foxes last term, Mahrez was still one of the club’s top performers, chalking up 10 goals and seven assists as the club reached the Quarter-Finals of the Champions League.
However, there are still doubts over whether he’ll ever recapture his form from Leicester’s title-winning campaign of 2015-16, and with a £50m price tag attached, he won’t come cheap.
But what do Arsenal fans think? Do you want Mahrez to join this summer, or would you rather see the cash splashed elsewhere?
