Arsene Wenger may have woken up to the reality that unless players are signed, Arsenal will not be able to win the Premier League title in the upcoming season.
We reported earlier that Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieryu had dismissed the posibility of Mahrez joining Arsenal. However, reports in the media wave claims Arsenal have table a £35million bid for the Algerian after the Premier league Champions rejected a £30million bud for him.
The Leicester winger scored 17 goals in the last season’s incredible title win, earning himself the PFA Player of the Year award for his efforts ahead of teammate Jamie Vardy, who put pen to paper on a new long-term deal at the King Power Stadium this summer.
L’Equipe journalist Gilles Favard reported on Wednesday that the Gunners offered £30million for the player and have added five to it after the initial was rejected.
It’s the first news of an actual move for Mahrez from Arsenal, meaning we wouldn’t get too excited just yet, and it’ll be interesting to see if anyone follows up on the claim in the coming hours.
