Arsenal ‘agree deal’ for 18-goal Barcelona prime target, announcement soon

The transfer window cannot end with Arsenal being linked with most of the available players in the market. This has been the case from time immemorial.

It was the report of Alexandre Lacazette that headlined the transfer media wave of Arsenal, and the president of Les Gones even confirmed that made offers for the striker. Emerging and unconfirmed reports have indicated that Algerian star Riyad Mahrez has agreed Arsenal deal.

Mahrez is currently unsettled at the Kingpower stadium and a move to the Emirates Stadium has been speculated. The former EPL player of the season has been in the transfer radar of Arsenal since last summer but it appears that he will fulfill his dream move to the Club this time around.

Arsene Wenger lead Arsenal to a fifth-place finish in the Premier League and but the Gunners attack was blameworthy for their shambolic season. Wenger now plans to bolster his attack, which includes the signing of Alexandre Lacazette and Riyad Mahrez.

A report by Calciomercato claims the deal is done but they failed to specific the details as to the fee and the duration of the deal. You may say the report does not hold water but we cannot neglect the fact that Arsene Wenger is an admirer of Riyad Mahrez.

To digress a bit, Mahrez plays from the wing and if Arsenal signs him, it means Oxlade Chamberlain or Theo Walcott will be allowed to depart the Emirates.

Mahrez was phenomenal to the Foxes winning the Premier League title in the penultimate season, where he scored 18 goals in all competitions.
