Riyad Mahrez


#1089

Wenger has already stated that an offer hasn’t been made yet.


#1090

Algerian media outlet Le Buteur claim that working with the Arsenal boss is key to Mahrez - so much so that he is willing to give up on his Champions League dream for a season so he can push through a move.

:wenger:

#Mahrezisaakb


#1092

#1093

Get in there my kebab boy!


#1094

@Ornstein get active ffs


#1095

Why would Liverpool still be interested in Mahrez?


#1096

Mahrez is Algerian. So this kebab boy doesn’t apply to him.


#1097

Ok, my bad ;9


#1098

Please curtail your racism on this board thanks.

Walcott and Sanchez out. Mahrez, Lemar and Lacazette in. I can live with a summer like that.

I could see Mahrez in for Sanchez happening.
He was their best player when Leicester won the PL title and started to show that form when Raneiri left.
He could be a great player for us.

The best scenario would be Mahrez in the Cazorla role, playing alongside Sanchez and Ozil, and selling Walcott and Perez and getting Mbappe or Aubameyang.


#1101

Mahrez has quick feet and can dribble the ball but he is no Cazorla. Cazorla’s spatial awareness, close control and passing accuracy are what make him such a vital cog in the wheel. Mahrez is a totally different player IMO.


#1102

A winger to replace a deep-lying playmaker? :bellerin: Would love to see him as wing-back, instead.


#1103

#1104

Looks like OA is very excited about it too…


#1105

I just want a signing!!!


#1106

I guess with the news coming in from the Guardian/RMC about the rejected bid for Lamar, it doesn’t seem too farfetched we’re talking with representatives of Mahrez as possinle plan B.

#1108

I no longer want him.
