Arsenal have increased their bid for Leicester City attacking midfielder Riyad Mahrez to £35million according to L'Equipe.
According to reports, this is the offer the Foxes asked Arsenal to pay after they rejected their £30million at the start of the week.
The 25-year-old played and scored for the Foxes as they suffered an unexpected 2-1 defeat at Hull City on Saturday afternoon.
He was full of smiles after restoring parity for his side but reports insist on claiming that he will leave the club to move to the Emirates.
Meanwhile, Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri has again insisted that the Algerian will not leave the club this summer.
"Could I know who is interested in Mahrez? No [approaches]. Riyad stays with us," Ranieri told Sky Sports.
"I say 'keep going, we have to improve, also you have to improve your experience by playing in the Champions League, it is totally different, European football is different from the Premier League and it is important to be focused on the new job'.
"Yes [convinced Mahrez wants to stay] but sometimes the manager says one thing and then does another thing."
