​Leicester star Mahrez rejects Roma, wants Arsenal move

Leicester winger Riyad Mahrez wants to join Arsenal.

According to the Sun, the Algerian will reject the advances of Roma and hold out for a move to the Gunners.

The Foxes have reiterated to the press that there have been no formal bids for Mahrez.

However, the 25-year old is almost certain to leave this summer after publicly stating his desire to continue his career elsewhere.

Arsenal's interest in Mahrez rests on their pursuit of Thomas Lemar. The Monaco winger is their primary target and if they are fortunate enough to agree a deal, Mahrez will not be moving to the Emirates.
