First, he said he is absolutely convinced that Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez will not leave Arsenal this summer. Then, he talked about who could join the team, and one name stack out.
We have not made a bid, but personally, I like the player, yes. I think he made a huge impact when they won the championship
Arsene Wenger told beIN Sports talking about Riyad Mahrez.
Like everybody else at Leicester, this season has been more challenging, but it doesn’t take away from his qualities
the Arsenal manager said, almost… defending the Algeria international, before clarifying
have we made a bid for him? No. Not yet. No, we have not. When I say, ‘not yet’, it means it could happen. It might not happen.
Wenger avoided giving details on what exactly will determine whether or not the Gunners will knock on Leicester City’s door for one of their biggest stars.
It was a teammate of his, Jamie Vardy, that Arsenal tried to sign last summer, only to be turned down by the English striker. This time, Mahrez, looks very eager to leave Leicester City, feeling that his cycle there is complete.
