Recently, Riyad Mahrez revealed he wants to leave the king Power Stadium after guiding them in winning the Premier League in the 2015/16 season.

According to the Sun, the 26-year-old Algerian international revealed he wnts  move to Arsenal because of Arsene Wenger.

Mahrez has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates this summer and reports suggest he has already told Foxes owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha of his decision.

Chelsea and Liverpool are also said to be looking at the former Le Havre player but he wants to link up with Wenger.

Gunners boss Wenger has refused to deny he will not make another bid for Mahrez.

Wenger said earlier this month: “We have not made a bid, but personally, I like the player, yes.

“I think he made a huge impact when they won the championship.

“Like at everybody else at Leicester, this season has been more challenging, but it doesn’t take away from his qualities.

“Have we made a bid for him? No. Not yet. No, we have not.

“When I say ‘not yet’ it means it could happen. It might not happen.”

It is believed Arsenal will have to spend £26million for the former PFA player.
