Mahrez favours moving to Arsenal over Roma

Arsenal and Leicester are in talks for Mahrez

Leicester City attacking midfielder Riyad Mahrez favours moving to Arsenal over Roma this month.

According to The Daily Mail, the 26-year-old winger, who has a young family, is understood to prefer to stay in England but featuring again in European competition is a priority.

The Gunners may make a move as they struggle to prise Thomas Lemar from Monaco, while Chelsea are also interested.

“It is flattering whenever you get linked with any big clubs, but as it stands, I have not talked to anyone,” said Mahrez.

“But we nearly have a month left of the transfer window so we will see what happens.”
