Arsenal have been linked with a move to sign Riyad Mahrez for months, and the bookmakers appear to believe the deal could go through today.
No less than an hour ago had Barcelona been 6/5 (2.2) to sign the Algerian winger, but they have now lengthened to between 3/1 (4.0) and 4/1 (5.0).
Arsenal on the other hand were as big as 9/2 (5.5) and have now shot into 5/4 (2.25) to sign the Leicester star.
The markets can be very volatile, especially in recent times where social media gives varying reports and all kinds of false information, and one picture I have seen was that Mahrez was supposedly spotted buying chicken nuggets in Enfield, which isn’t too far from Tottenham or Arsenal…

Leicester City on the other hand have denied that any offers have even been received today, leaving the saga all the more confusing for onlookers.
Where will Mahrez end up? Have Leicester been told to keep all business private?
