The Mirror reports Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez is desperate to join Arsenal this summer but is frustrated as he feels Leicester’s £50m price tag which is pricing him out of the move to Arsenal.
The Algerian international came close to joining Arsenal last summer but opted out to renew his contract with the Foxes last summer but failed to replicate his impressive performance where he guided the Foxes in winning the Premier League in the 2015/16 season.
Mahrez is now ready for a move after submitting a transfer request at the end of last season and he’s once again been strongly linked with a move to the Emirates.
Arsenal officials have opened talks with Leicester and made it clear we’re prepared to pay £35m to sign Mahrez this summer but that falls short of their £50m valuation.
