How Arsenal Twitter reacted to news that Riyad Mahrez wants to leave Leicester


Arsenal target Riyad Mahrez wants to leave Leicester City this summer, according to a number of reports.

While it’s believed that last year’s PFA Player of the Season has been offered a bumper new contract, the loss of N’Golo Kante to Chelsea won’t have done the Foxes any favours in their attempts to hold onto the talented winger.

The Gunners have long been admirers of the Algerian international along with the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona and it’s believed that having already settled into life in England, Mahrez would favour a Premier League stay.

Mahrez is believed to be worth a fee of around £30m – a small fee in comparison to the £375,000 Leicester paid for his services when they purchased him from Le Havre.

With the 25-year-old prepared to leave the Premier League champions in search of a ‘bigger side’, how have Arsenal fans reacted to the news?

Some found it too hard to believe…

Others wanted to dream….

Others poked fun at a certain someone about it…

Personally I think Arsenal need a left footed goal scoring right winger like Mahrez more than a new striker to replace Giroud. Sanchez has a lock on Arsenal’s left wing spot and has proven himself a prolific goal scorer, few strikers in world football have the combination of creativity and physical strength of Giroud, plus his goal scoring record is quite good when the specific requirements of his role in Arsenal’s attacking system are taken into consideration. A left footed goal scoring right winger like Mahrez is the missing piece in Arsenal’s attacking trio.
