Arsenal readying fresh bid for Riyad Mahrez

  Arsenal readying fresh bid for Riyad Mahrez Arsenal are reportedly readying a fresh bid for Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez ahead of the January transfer window. According to a report from Algerian news outlet Le Buteur, as cited by Inside Futbol, the Gunners are putting the finishing touches on a new and improved proposal for the tricky winger. Mahrez handed in a transfer request at the end of last season at the King Power Stadium, but no move away materialised for the Algeria international. He has not let this influence his performance levels, though, and has been in sublime form since the arrival of Claude Puel in the managerial hot-seat at the club. Mahrez was of interest to Arsenal in the summer but no move eventually went through, with the likes of PSG and Barcelona both linked with the Foxes star as well. The report does indicate, however, that the Foxes are skeptical over selling Mahrez quickly, with the side keen to bolster their own ranks in January.

Liverpool are closing in on a £49 million deal for Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez , according to reports. Earlier on Saturday, Liverpool and Barcelona agreed a £142m transfer fee for Philippe Coutinho, who has now travelled to Spain to finalise his move.

Liverpool have agreed a fee of €55m (roughly £48.7m) with Leicester City for Riyad Mahrez, according to a report from beIN SPORTS in France.

The Algerian, according to the report, will have a medical with the Reds tomorrow ahead of the move.

Earlier today, it was reported by the Press Association that Liverpool were not interested in Mahrez and that they’d even contacted The Foxes to let them know that reports of their interest were wide of the mark.

However, beIN seem to think differently and are reporting that the former PFA Player’s Player of the Year will indeed make a switch to Anfield as a replacement for Philippe Coutinho who is set to become a Barcelona player in a £142m deal.
