World class winger addresses rumours he could make £50 million Arsenal move
Manchester City star Riyad Mahrez has quashed any rumours linking him with a shock move to Arsenal this summer.
The Algerian was touted as a potential target for Mikel Arteta – whom he worked with during the latter’s time as Pep Guardiola’s assistant, as there has been some reports in the media that City are looking to let him leave the club.
The Gunners were also strongly linked with a move for the winger during his Leicester days before he joined the Premier League champions, and it was said Arsenal could reignite their interest as they look to add a bit more quality to the squad.
Arteta is a man that knows he is lacking serious quality in key areas of the pitch and considering Mahrez is one of the very best in the Premier League, a £50 million move has been mooted in the media.
But amid all the speculation that Arsenal are very much interested in a transfer deal, Mahrez has reaffirmed his commitment to the Sky Blues following his nation’s 1-0 victory against Mali.
He told DZ Sport: “There is nothing about my future. I am well in Manchester. I will stay God willing.”
Even though Mahrez wants to stay at the club, the rumours in the media are there for a reason and if the right offer comes in from Arsenal, or any other club in Europe, we are certain that City would be open to selling.
But He is the type of player that Arsenal need to be signing, it is just a shame that they will not have the money to get those kind of deals done right?
