Arsenal have already made one superb signing in the form of Granit Xhaka this summer, but Wenger’s business clearly isn’t done. The Frenchman could have just landed a huge boost, in pursuit of last year’s Premier League Player of the Season, Riyad Mahrez. That’s according to reports in his homeland.
Le Buteur of Algeria say that Mahrez has agreed to a move to the Emirates Stadium this summer, and if this deal does go through, what a huge statement of intent it would be from the perennial top four club.
25-Year-old Mahrez stunned the Premier League with outstanding performances all season-long, and inevitably that led to interest in his signature from the so-called bigger clubs.
It seems like Arsenal have won that race and what a coup it’d be to their attacking line. A three of Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Riyad Mahrez in-behind their striker sounds scintillating.
