All the Arsenal transfer rumours this morning are adamant that we are not just trying to get Jamie Vardy from Leicester, but also the brilliant young Player-of-the-Season Riyad Mahrez.
Personally I think that this will be an even better buy than Vardy, but to get both of them leading our attack next season will be brilliant! Especially with Sanchez on the other wing and Ozil in behind. And Giroud on the bench hehe!
This is how the Sun described it this morning: ARSENAL are in talks to add Riyad Mahrez to the signing of Jamie Vardy in a stunning double raid on Leicester.
Arsene Wenger has already met the £20million release clause of Foxes striker Vardy, who has reportedly had his medical today at London Colney.
But now in another incredible twist, Vardy is set to be joined by his PFA Player of the Year team-mate Mahrez.
The Gunners have been shocked that Mahrez’s release clause is so low and now have well and truly sparked the break-up of the Premier League-winning Foxes team.
The 25-year-old cost Leicester only £400,000 from Le Havre in January 2014 and after a slow start became a Prem superstar.
I can’t believe that any Arsenal fan will be annoyed if we get such a winning partnership from the Premier League Champions, but I also find it hard to believe that there are not more bidders coming in to compete for Mahrez. I can only hope that he would prefer to carry on playing alongside Vardy to ensure another league title next summer….
