Wenger Ready to Agree $123,000-a-week For Riyad Mahrez for Arsenal

Arsenal have been poor against relegation threatened teams this season and draw the Foxes at the Emirates earlier this season.

The reigning Premier League champions have been in terrible form and it will be absolutely disastrous if they get relegated. If that happens, top PL clubs will surely look to sign Leicester’s quality stars.

According to the latest reports going on in the media, Riyad Mahrez is once again in the limelight. Tutto Mercato Web have exclusively claimed that Arsene Wenger is ready to sign the Algerian international. The Frenchman has made Mahrez his transfer priority for next summer.

Riyad won the PFA Player of the Year for his brilliant performances in the last campaign, he scored 17 goals and provided 10 assists in 37 games for Leicester. Afterwards, he signed a new contract with the club worth ($123,000-a-week) £100,000 a week (Telegraph).

This time around, the 26-year-old playmaker has been in mediocre form. In 24 league games, he has only netted 3 goals and provided 3 assists.

Mahrez mainly plays on the right hand side of the attack, a position covered by star playmaker Theo Walcott at Arsenal. However, the African star is very effective as a central attacking midfielder as well.
