Leicester set to discuss the sale of Mahrez? 

Leicester set to discuss the sale of Mahrez? By AH
The latest rumours surrounding Riyad Mahrez may suggest that deal is underway with the Gunners, but in reality we all know to take this with a pinch of salt considering Arsenal’s track record when it comes to transfers. Arsenal may not be in full negotiations with Leicester, but are the Premier League champions set to discuss a potential sale?
The Metro are reporting this evening that Leicester City owners are meeting in Los Angeles to discuss the futures of Mahrez, Chilwell and Schlupp, who are all reportedly under the watchful eye of other Premier League clubs. Schmeichel and Drinkwater are also on the agenda, whilst Simpson, who is in his final contracted year, is set for talks about his future.
The Metro quote Sky Sports sources behind the reason to believe that those players mentioned are currently attracting interest from other parties outside Leicester and so it was deemed that an ’emergency meeting’ would be called between club officials.
The owners will of course be discussing Mahrez’s link to Arsenal and although there seems to be nothing concrete in the works yet, Arsenal’s interest is clear. Arsenal were actively in the market for a winger earlier in the summer in the shape of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, whilst the Gunners have also been linked with the likes of Draxler and Turan. At a rumoured £41 million, Mahrez would be the most expensive option of the window but perhaps Wenger is willing to play such kind of money for the talent that Mahrez, the PFA Player of the Year, has to offer to the Premier League.
We can all hope that there are some more developments in Arsenal’s hunt for Mahrez, but given that Ranieri is under the impression that no more of his stars will leave after Kante, perhaps the Gunners will be set up for disappointment again.

Leicester ready to accept Arsenal offer for Mahrez?

This is the one transfer deal that every Arsenal fan is hoping will happen this summer. If Arsene Wenger does get his man and last season’s PFA Player of the Year Riyad Mahrez comes to north London then I reckon all the transfer window woes of the past will be forgotten, for a while at least.

Proof Arsenal were RIGHT to let Man Utd have Ibrahimovic?

The only thing I would like to see more than Arsenal lifting the Premier League trophy at the end of the up and coming season (well maybe not the only thing but let’s stick to football) would be for Jose Mourinho and Manchester United to flop like a souffle taken out of the oven too soon.

Is Gnabry ready for Arsenal First XI?

Big Pre-Season for Gnabry!

Serge Gnabry made his debut for Arsenal in 2012 and it seems like despite being in the squad for four years now, Gnabry has made very little progress towards becoming a first team regular. Having featured in the opening game against Lens and looking relatively impressive for the first game back, Arsenal fans will hope to expect bigger things from Gnabry this year!

The ONE thing Arsenal need to ensure strong EPL title challenge

Football is a matter of opinions in some ways, even though it is on paper a simple game that is about getting a round bag full of wind into an oversized net, and this is highlighted perfectly by the very different sections of Arsenal fans that have become known as the WOB and the AKBs.

Arsenal back in to try and sign creative midfield star

Arsenal have returned to Inter Milan to enquire about the possible capture of Marcelo Brozovic this summer. The Croatian international enjoyed an impressive European Championships alongside Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic, although the Arsenal chief has long been in the know when it comes to his potential and talent.

Transfer insider reveals £100M Arsenal budget for winger and ‘secret target’

Arsenal are in talks to sign an unknown striker according to Emanuele Giulianelli, but will turn to Alexandre Lacazette should talks fail to prove fruitful.

The journalist was the first to reveal the deal which would send Granit Xhaka from Borussia Monchengladbach to North-London this summer, and he has now claimed that there is a deal in place to sign Alexandre Lacazette, despite the club holding preference in another signature.

Injury update in Arsenal’s pre-season!

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has already had to give his first injury update of the new season and we’ve only had one pre-season game. The Gunners didn’t sustain any injuries as a result of the first pre-season match against Lens, however there were a few first team regulars who were absent due to either injury or an extended holiday.
