​Leicester boss relaxed as Mahrez and Slimani seen at Arsenal game

Leicester boss Claude Puel made light of Riyad Mahrez and Islam Slimani being spotted at Arsenal on Wednesday by joking he sent them there to compile scout reports, reports Sky Sports.

Puel, however, laughed off the speculation they are possible transfer targets, saying: "I asked Mahrez and Slimani to watch the game between Chelsea and Arsenal to make a report. They are good scouts!

"There is nothing to say about Riyad or Slimani. I think it's a good thing if there's some noise about them because it shows they are good players and shows the quality of the team.

"The transfer window is a period with speculation. We have to manage this period with calm. At the end of January we will be happy."
