Mahrez Agrees Switch To Arsenal
Arsenal are on the verge of beating Barcelona, Chelsea and Liverpool to the signing of Riyad Mahrez, who is set to agree a £35million move to Arsenal after growing “tired” of pursuing a move to Barcelona, according to Metro UK.
The Algerian winger has flourished since joining Leicester City in 2014, helping the Foxes clinch the Premier League title in 2016, rocked the club this summer by saying he wanted to leave The Foxes as he “wants to play Champions League every year”.
Mahrez was named the PFA Player of the Year following the remarkable season but was unable to replicate the feat during the most recent campaign.
As Leicester struggled in their title defence, initially emerging as shock relegation contenders, Mahrez failed to find his best form before improving towards the end of the season.
But after three years at the King Power Stadium, the playmaker is ready to move on, confirming earlier in the month that he would seek a summer move.
“The chairman and I agreed that I would stay another year at the club and that he would let me leave at the end of the season. I think it would be the right time for me to leave, I have experienced everything at this football club,” Mahrez said.
The Algeria international has had no shortage of potential suitors after announcing his intention to leave, with Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool all hoping to secure his signature.
But Mahrez, 26, was reportedly happy to snub the Premier League giants in favour of a switch to Barcelona, who had also expressed interest in a summer swoop.
Spanish outlet AS say that while the player has been in talks with Barca, he is growing tired of waiting for a formal offer, now turning his attentions back to Arsenal.
