Mahrez hoping for Arsenal move despite withdrawing transfer request

  Mahrez hoping for Arsenal move despite withdrawing transfer request Leicester City midfielder Riyad Mahrez is still looking to get a move away from the club and it seems a move to Arsenal is his preferred destination, according to the Express. Mahrez handed in a transfer request in January as he hoped to get a move to Premier League champions Manchester City but this failed to materialise with the club proving too stubborn. City were keen on bringing him on the final day of the window but the Algerian remained with the Foxes. He has tailed off of late but has performed well since his dream move to the Etihad fell through at the start of the year. It will take a large sum to get the playmaker away from the King Power while Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea are also keen on the player. Arsenal have long been linked with the player as they look to add more creativity to their squad.

Arsenal have been charged with failing to control their players during Wednesday's 3-1 Premier League defeat at Leicester City, the Football Association (FA) has announced.

The charge relates to how Arsenal reacted to referee Graham Scott after Henrikh Mkhitaryan was adjudged to have brought down Demarai Gray in the penalty area.

England striker Jamie Vardy converted from the spot before Riyad Mahrez's late goal sealed the points in a match which saw Arsenal reduced to 10 men by Konstantinos Mavropanos' 15th-minute red card.

"Arsenal have been charged with failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion," an FA statement read.

"The incident occurred in the 75th minute of Wednesday's game against Leicester City.

"Arsenal have until 6pm on Wednesday [16 May, 2018] to respond to the charge."
