Though Jamie Vardy and N’Golo Kante could very well slip through Arsene Wenger’s fingers, star winger Riyad Mahrez may have given Arsenal renewed hope for a transfer move.
In a recent interview [per the Metro], Mahrez acted unsure about the possibility of leaving Leicester City and joining up with Arsenal – who have expressed significant interest in bringing him to Emirates Stadium. He said that he has yet to make a decision about a possible move and doesn’t know for sure if he’ll stay with Leicester or go to Arsenal.
‘It is flattering to hear, as I said nothing is agreed, nothing is done,’ Mahrez said.
‘We will see… For the moment I have not made a decision (about my future). We will see.
‘It is possible that I stay, it is possible that I leave. We will see.’
The 25-year-old Algerian winger scored 17 goals and made 11 assists this past year as one of the key men in Leicester City’s title win.
For his efforts he was named the PFA Player of the Year and earned PFA Team of the Year honours alongside teammates Jamie Vardy, Wes Morgan and N’Golo Kante.
Mahrez’s teammate Jamie Vardy has reportedly had his release clause triggered but is not expected to make a decision on an Arsenal move until after Euro 2016.
