Ahead of the new English Premier League season, a desperate Arsenal fan was reported to have chased down Arsene Wenger begging him to sign Leicester City Midfielder, Riyad Mahrez.
Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger is famous for being frugal in the transfer window but has been linked with a £37million move for last season’s Premier League player of the season.
Leicester city have already lost midfielder, N’Golo Kante to Chelsea this summer and they will be desperate not to lose any more of their first-team stars.
The Gunners were also interested in England striker Jamie Vardy but he snubbed them and signed a new long-term deal at the King Power stadium.
Brilliant midfielder, Mahrez, scored 17 league goals as his side stunned the world to win last season’s title at crazy odds of 5000/1.
And he collected the PFA Player of the Year with the nation’s players recognising his contribution to the Hollywood blockbuster story.
Mahrez’s attacking prowess, small frame and versatility to be able to play anywhere in attack make the 25-year-old an archetypal Wenger signing.
But his hefty price tag might put off the famously thrifty Gunners boss who usually prefers to unearth cheaper talents.
