Confirmed by Wenger! Mahrez Just Signed For Arsenal

Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.

One of the biggest transfer saga from last summer was Arsenal’s interest in winners Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy.

Neither player ended up with the Gunners, but they have reportedly revived their interest in the Algerian, who has handed in his transfer request at Leicester City.

The 30-cap international blew up the Premier League in 2015-16, bagging 17 league goals and providing another 10 for his teammates as Leicester romped to a shock title.

His outstanding performance earned him attention from the Gunners and Barcelona, but he opted to remain at Arsenal, where he struggled with poor form and was relegated to the bench on several occasion as the Foxes tried to defend their title.

Mahrez, whose value in transfermarkt.com is placed at £25.5m, scored only six league goals and assisted four last term and is now looking to move away from the King Power Stadium.
