There are plenty of Arsenal FC transfer rumors circulating in the Twitterverse, blogosphere, cyberspace and media world today, but the biggest centers around Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez. Gunners Manager Arsene Wenger said yesterday that the team will spend “big money” on the right player.

He added, of course that this would only happen with the right player. We know it likely won’t be Gonzalo Higuain. Obviously, earlier this window we learned it won’t be Jamie Vardy,

Apparently, it won’t be Riyad Mahrez either.


“I’m confident, of course,” Leicester City Manager Claudio Ranieri said today when asked if he believed the reigning PFA Player of the Year would stay.

“We know very well there are other teams who must win the Premier League. We just have to defend it.”

“I changed him at last because I said ‘okay, his job is done, it’s better to avoid injury.’

“I’m very happy, we have a very good dressing room. The players who came in are very good.”

Ranieri made the comments at an International Champions Cup press conference. Riyad Mahrez scored the only goal in the Foxes win over Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic side (6-5 on penalties).


For the Gunners, it looks like they’ll have to look to someone other than the Algerian winger to spend their money on.

  1. As an Arsenal fan i will never forgive Arsene Wenger if he allow Fabregas to join any of the top teams in the english premier league. Arsenal should sign him rather than chelsea.

  3. Vardy without Mahrez is like a bag without hands!
    Bellerin, Fabregas, Özil, Vardy, Mahrez! Arsenal will be champion 100%…

    In a frantic attempt to win something/anything Arsenal have bid £2billion for the entire Leicester squad, backroom staff, training facilities and will have the King Power stadium relocated to a brownfield site in North London.
    An Arsenal spokesman said “Leicester must be stopped and we believe this could be the way”
    Mr Wenger also stated that he would be kept on in an advisory capacity on a “rolling” one year contract.
    No-one at Leicester was available for comment.
    We await further developments.
