‘It Could Happen’ – Arsene Wenger Confirms He Wants Riyad Mahrez
Arsene Wenger has confirmed his interest in Riyad Mahrez.
The Arsenal boss has around £150million to spend this summer and has targeted the Prem title having signed a new two-year deal.
According to SunSport, Wenger is set to make a £40m bid for the Algerian ace – who has demanded an exit from Leicester.
He is insistent that Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil will not be sold this summer.
Wenger says that he is yet to make an opening offer for Mahrez but admitted he could table a bid could be imminent.
The Frenchman said:
“We have not made a bid for him but personally I like the player, yes.
“I think he had a huge impact at Leicester when they won the championship, like everybody else.
“It’s been a different season this year but it doesn’t take anything away from his qualities.
“Have we made a bid for him? No. Not yet. Not yet means it could happen, it could not happen.”
