"He is desperate to join Arsenal" - 26-year-old has his heart set on a move to the Emirates


Leicester City attacking midfielder Riyad Mahrez "has his heart set on a transfer to Arsenal this summer" according to Sport Review.

The Algeria international was first contacted by the Gunners during last summer's transfer window.

But he eventually decided to stay with the Foxes.

At the end of last season he declared that he will leave the club during the summer transfer window.

But Leicester will only sell him if a £50million offer is made, a fee that the North Londoners have no intention of paying.

They offered £40million in August of last year and they are ready to offer the same amount this summer.

The Algeria international reported back to Leicester for pre-season training last week but is determined to leave to make a move to the Emirates.
