Gunners emerge as 5/2 favourites to sign Riyad Mahrez 0

Posted on August 31, 2017 by Milos Markovic

Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez has been attracting plenty of attention around Europe as the 26-year-old is looking to leave the King Power Stadium before the transfer window closes on Thursday night.

The Algeria international has been released from international duty in attempt to finalize his future, knowing he formally handed in a transfer request earlier in the summer.

Mahrez was reportedly promised by club officials Leicester City would not stand in his way this summer, but the Foxes star still failed to solve his situation during the entire summer during which he was strongly linked with a move to Serie A giants AS Roma. Giallorossi, however, failed in their £32 million bid for the Foxes winger earlier this summer and are thought to be out of the race.

According to the Metro, Leicester City have decided to drop their asking price for Algerian international winger Riyad Mahrez to £40million. The 26-year-old handed in a transfer request earlier this summer and is expected to leave the Midlands club before the transfer window shuts.

Arsenal, Tottenham and Italian club Roma are all reportedly interested in signing Mahrez this summer in a big money deal. The Gunners had been linked with a move for the skilful star last summer, but he decided to sign a new deal with the then-champions.

According to The Sun, Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez is willing to snub interest from Italian Serie A side AS Roma to push for his Arsenal move. The Algerian international has been linked with a switch to the Emirates Stadium for 12 months, having been the subject of interest from Arsenal last summer, and could be on his way to London if latest reports are to be believed.

According to German publication Sport Bild, Arsenal could be set to make a summer move for Schalke’s highly rated German international midfielder Goretzka. However, they could face stiff competition for the 22-year-old from Bavarian giants Bayern Munich for the midfielder’s signature.

The young midfielder is gaining a big reputation in European football. Schalke are unwilling to sell the midfielder, despite his contract expiring next summer.

The German club did the same with Arsenal defender Sead Kolasinac and the defender joined the Gunners on a free transfer this summer. It seems they are prepared to lose another player for nothing next summer and miss out on a significant transfer fee.

According to the Daily Star, Arsenal could lose out on Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez, with AS Roma reportedly keen on his signature. City manager Craig Shakespeare recently revealed there had been no offer for the Algerian, with Arsenal putting their focus on Monaco’s Thomas Lemar this summer.

Arsene Wenger’s side have had two bids rejected for the 21-year-old and are believed to be preparing a third bid up to £50m. If Arsenal are successful in signing Lemar, they aren’t going to approach Mahrez. Roma, however, do want the latter as a replacement for Mohamed Salah, who joined Liverpool.

The latest rumour on the transfer mill involving Arsenal seems to be the Gunners making a move for Inter Milan’s Croatian midfielder Marcelo Brozovic.

This story comes from ESPN, who claim that Arsenal are interested in adding the highly-rated Croatian to their ranks this summer. The 24-year-old is just one in a long line of players linked with a move to the north London club this summer.

Now it seems that he may be considered a cheaper alternative to Monaco’s Thomas Lemar and Leicester’s Riyad Mahrez, who are reported transfer targets for the club this summer.

Arsenal interested in Real Madrid star 0

According to Spanish news outlet Diario Gol, Arsenal and Premier League rivals Arsenal are both interested in signing Real Madrid’s highly talented attacking midfielder Marcos Asensio this summer.

Asensio is one of the brightest young prospects in the Spanish game. The 21-year-old was one of the stars of the under 21 European Championships, where his national team finished runners-up to Germany.

Despite being highly rated, the versatile youngster has understandable had problems getting into the Los Blancos starting line-up. Last season he did make his mark in the Spanish capital and scored in Real’s 4-1 win over Juventus in the Champions League.

According to the Daily Star, Leicester City have not received an offer from Arsenal for Algerian forward Riyad Mahrez. Manager Craig Shakespeare revealed there hasn’t been an approach from any club and are expecting him to stay at the King Power Stadium as a result.

“I’m not worried. Can it be disappointing when a player comes out publically? Yes. I think we have to look what is behind that as well, in terms of advice,” he told Sky Sports. Arsenal, who were unsuccessful in signing Mahrez last summer, reportedly bid £35m for the Leicester winger but no progress has been made.

Arsenal may turn to Mahrez instead of Monaco star 0

With the arrival of striker Alexandre Lacazette set to be announced imminently, Arsenal are expected to now step up their bid to sign Monaco winger Thomas Lemar.

The French champions are understandably not keen on selling the youngster and have resisted any interest in the winger’s services so far this summer. In fact, Arsenal were reported to have had a bid of around £30m rejected last month. Monaco are attempting to ward off the Gunners interest by raising their asking price.

Lemar is regarded as one of Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger’s main transfer targets this summer. The winger would add pace and direct running to the Gunners attack.

Lemar won’t hand in transfer request to force Arsenal move 0

According to Goal, AS Monaco midfielder Thomas Lemar is still happy to stay at the Stade Louis II if his deal to join Arsenal falls through. It’s believed the 21-year-old won’t force a move away from Monaco should the two clubs not agree a deal.

Arsenal have had a first bid rejected and have since made a second offer. But reports suggested Monaco wouldn’t sell any more players given Bernardo Silva’s departure and Tiemoué Bakayoko’s potential Chelsea move. The Gunners could miss out on Lemar this summer as a result.
