Football Rumor: Algerian Riyad Mahrez Set To Replace Alexis Sanchez


With Alexis Sanchez likely to join Manchester City in the January transfer window Arsenal are looking to replace his absence with Algerian and Leicester City attacking midfielder Riyad Mahrez.

According to the Le Buteur website Arsenal are reportedly weighing up a bid for Mahrez, but Leicester have insisted that the 26-year-old will not go for cheap and are likely to hold out for an offer of at least £44 million.

Leicester have shown their resilience in the past and determination to get fair value for Mahrez as was evident when they rejected three bids made by Serie A club Roma in the last transfer market.

Arsenal, though, will be desperate to acquire the Algerian’s services especially if Sanchez does make a move to Manchester City which is looking more and more likely.
