Riyad Mahrez wants to join Arsenal – but he refuses to “force Leicester City’s hand”.
French Eurosport reporter Ilyes Ramdani has spoken openly about Mahrez’s Arsenal ambitions.
He is quoted by the Daily Star: “It will have escaped no one that the player is mature in his silence and never said or even implied that he wanted to [join Arsenal].
“But he absolutely refuses to go to battle with a club that has a lot of recognition. (And that is obviously due to him).
“He has expressed his position to the different parts (his desire to sign for Arsenal) but he will not force the hand of Leicester.”
