Arsenal could complete the signing of Riyad Mahrez this week, according to reports.
Mahrez who revealed in May that he wants to leave Leicester City this summer has been linked with a host of big clubs within and outside England.
Wenger is a big admirer of the player, having tried to sign him last summer and has been keeping tabs on him since then.
Immediately Mahrez declared his intention to leave Leicester City, Arsenal were unsurprisingly linked with him again.
Chelsea, Tottenham and Liverpool were also linked with the midfielder but reports claimed it was either Barcelona or Arsenal for Mahrez.
Apparently, Mahrez is set to join Arsenal after getting tired of waiting for Barcelona to make their move.
Calciomercato via Sports Mole, claims Arsenal opened talks with Leicester City last week and are confident of completing a deal by the end of this week.
Despite basing his decision of leaving Leicester City on wanting to play Champions League football, Mahrez is willing to complete a move to The Emirates despite Arsenal not in next season’s UCL.
Wenger appears to be stepping up his transfer activities as the club prepares for pre-season. Mahrez could join Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac as the new faces when the team returns from holiday.
