Riyad Mahrez is forcing through a move to Arsenal, reports claim.

Leicester’s star winger is a target for Arsene Wenger, although the Gunners are reluctant to meet his asking price, having prioritised Monaco’s Thomas Lemar.

Roma have shown the greatest interest and had a £20m bid rejected.

The Serie A side are still pursuing Mahrez, but according to The Sun, he will reject their approach in a bid to seal a £35m move to Arsenal.

The 26-year-old is prepared to wait until later in the window to make the switch, with his heart set on joining the Gunners.
