​Arsenal turn attention to Leicester winger Mahrez after Lemar stalemate

Arsenal will look at their second option, Riyad Mahrez, after negotiations about with Monaco about Thomas Lemar have stalled.

The Leicester City winger is desperate to leave the Foxes this summer and has eyed Arsenal as an ideal destination.

The Gunners were set to sign Lemar after lodging a bid of £30.7m last week.

However, with most of their stars on their way out, Monaco have fended off Arsenal's advances for the 21-year old.

The Mirror reports that Arsene Wenger has now given the go ahead to pursue Mahrez.
