Riyad Mahrez: Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger interested in Leicester


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said he is willing to sign Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez when the transfer window opens.


The 26-year old, who won the PFA Player of the Season award at the end of 2015/2016 season, scored 10 goals and provided seven assists as Leicester finished 12th in the league and reached the Champions League quarter-finals this season.

But he has asked the club to let him leave though he only just signed a four-year deal last August.


Despite expressing his interest in Mahrez publicly, Wenger did not confirm if a bid has been made yet.


“Have we made a bid for him? No. Not yet. Not yet means it could happen, it could not happen,” said Wenger.


“I think he had a huge impact at Leicester when they won the championship, like everybody else,” Wenger told Bein Sports.


“It’s been a different season this year but it doesn’t take anything away from his qualities.”
