"He could join this week" - One of Arsene Wenger's top transfer targets to become Arsenal's second signing


Riyad Mahrez has given up on waiting for Barcelona and has decided to join Arsenal instead, according to the Daily Star.

The article claims that the Algeria international was eager to join the Spanish giants but having understood that they have other priorities he will now opt for a move to the Emirates.

The 26-year-old is certain to leave the Foxes and was ready to embark on a new experience in the Spanish Liga.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is a big fan of the Algerian, having already tried to sign him during last summer's transfer window.

If the transfer goes through this week, the attacking midfielder will become Wenger's second summer signing after Sead Kolasinac.

On Monday, reports in England have claimed that the Frenchman wants to sign all new players before the start of pre-season.
