Arsenal are being touted as favorites to sign Leicester City star, Riyad Mahrez.

The Foxes’ midfielder has been linked with a number of top clubs across Europe since his award winning performances of last season but it seems the Gunners are leading the race to win his signature.

According to reports, the midfielder has rejected a new deal at the King Power Stadium and has informed his employers that he wants a new challenge.

According to Evening Standard, Arsenal have been boosted by the news that Mahrez is looking to change clubs this summer and the report claims the club is now keeping close tabs on his situation.

Chelsea are also believed to be in the race to sign the midfielder but Skybet has placed the Gunners as odds on favourites to sign the midfielder.

Leicester City are still working hard to convince the player to remain at the club and Ranieri is hopeful Mahrez wouldn’t follow Kante out of the club.

Mahrez was last season’s PFA player of the year as he led the Foxes to their first ever Premier League title in the club’s history.

Should Wenger be able to pull off the signing of the midfielder, he would make our squad considerably stronger and will lift up the spirit within the Emirates.
