Arsenal are ready to battle for Leicester city’s striker Riyad Mahrez despite the player’s loss of form since the start of the season.
Arsenal have been targeting the Algerian player since he helped Leicester City to an unbelievable English Premier league title in the 2015/2016 season.
Tottenham are reportedly interested in the player who is also a target for Spanish La Liga side, Barcelona.
According to reports from daily sun, Tottenham are ready to go any length to seal the player’s signature during January transfer window.
Mahrez submitted a transfer request to the club’s hierarchy due to the club’s poor run of results during last season which made them finish in the second half of the league table.
Barcelona, Roma, all chased after his signature but couldn’t get the player as Leicester refused to let him go at a cheap price.
Mahrez seems to have rediscovered his blistering form this season under coach Puel who was hired as Shakespeare’s replacement.
He is set to leave the club once the January’s transfer window opens.
Mahrez will add creativity to Arsenal’s midfield if Ozil finally leaves the club in January or during summer transfer window.
Tottenham will be hoping to get the player whom they hold in high regard. Mahrez will no doubt add quality to Tottenham’s front line. He will create a good partnership with Harry Kane.
Leicester will make total amount of £30m profit from the sale of the player as his price tag has fallen drastically due to his lackluster performance during last season and the beginning of this season.
He is valued at 30,00 Mill. €.
