Arsenal expected to make January move for in-form Premier League winger

Emirates Stadium side keen on goal-scoring wide-man.

Arsenal are expected to make a move for Leicester City attacker Riyad Mahrez in January according to the Daily Express.

The 24-year-old has enjoyed a superb start to the current campaign, netting four goals before putting in a man of the match display against Aston Villa, during which he provided two assists.

One can well see why Arsene Wenger would be interested in Mahrez though one wonders if the addition of a creative midfielder should be high up on the North London side’s priorities.

The lack of a prolific goal-scorer to provide Arsenal with a real cutting edge and the addition of an experienced defensive midfielder could be considered more pressing than any bid for the in-form Foxes star.

Leicester City paid Le Havre just £350k for Riyad Mahrez in January 2014 and one would imagine the King Power Stadium side could demand ten times that sum now, such is the superb run of form the French born Algerian international has displayed.
