Arsenal linked with mega-money move for star Premier League attacker
The Gunners are set to land last season's PFA Player of the Year Riyad Mahrez, according to reports.
Arsene Wenger could be about to tie up one of the deals of the summer.
Having seen Jamie Vardy slip through their grasp, it looks as though Arsenal will now plunder Leicester City for Riyad Mahrez.
Reports from Eurosport.fr suggest that the north London club have made a £42million bid for the silky winger, having allegedly agreed terms with the Algerian already.
Eurosport's info is that #AFC met Mahrez's agent in Lens. The agent has declined to comment on the story.— gunnerblog (@gunnerblog) July 23, 2016
Arsenal would clearly be getting a high-quality performer:

Will the Gunners have any money left over to spend on a striker though?
