Arsenal closing on Mahrez deal with Bookmakers cowering

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).

What are Arsenal waiting for before completing Mahrez swoop?

Arsenal are believed to have held talks over a swoop for Riyad Mahrez for much of the summer, but have put his capture off so far.
