Arsenal are set to make Riyad Mahrez it’s next summer signing, after Alexandre Lacazette, according to reports.
Wenger is determined to spend big this summer and he has already sanctioned a club record move for Lacazette.
Arsenal will now turn attention to Riyad Mahrez as Wenger attempts to get most of his signing before the start of next season.
And according to reliable Italian journalist Tancredi Palmieri, Mahrez is close to joining Arsenal.
He wrote on Twitter : “Arsenal near Mahrez. Last year was just a step.”
Arsenal were interested in signing Mahrez last summer but the winger opted to sign a new deal at Leicester, and Palmieri reckons our attempt to sign him last year has given us an edge in the race for his signature this time around.
Chelsea and Liverpool were also rumored to be interested in the winger but his preference would be to join Arsenal. Should Wenger complete the signing of Mahrez, he will be a great acquisition and an upgrade to whatever options we have on the right wing now.
