The Daily Express have reported that Arsenal will try to beat the competition from Liverpool and Manchester City to secure the signature of Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez next summer.
The 26-year-old winger was near to complete his transfer to Etihad this winter, but the deal collapsed on the deadline day due to the Foxes’ huge requirements.
The Citizens’ £60 million offer was quickly rejected by the Leicester management that would like to get as much as £90 million to release their best player.
The Algeria international has been heavily linked with a possible move to Anfield as a replacement for Philippe Coutinho, but Jurgen Klopp opted to wait until the summer.
Now, the Gunners are trying to hijack Mahrez’s deal to bolster their attacking ranks following Alexis Sanchez’s departure.
Additionally, Manchester United and Chelsea are also in the race, which could only benefit Leicester as they could now raise the price.
