Arsenal interested in signing Manchester City star Riyad Mahrez.
The Premier League champions are reportedly ready to cash in on a number of stars
to fund a squad refresh this summer. Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez
are all reportedly up for sale
NSL Understands Mahrez, 30, is one star who may be moved on to make way for Villa
The ex-Leicester winger cost a club-record £60million when moving from the King Power
in 2018 and is under contract for another two years.
Guardiola is expected to select him to start against Chelsea in tonight’s Champions
League final having starred in the knockout stages.
Barcelona and Real Madrid are noted as keen on Sterling while Arsenal have been
credited with an interest in both the England ace and Mahrez.
Mahrez has hit 14 goals and notched nine assists ahead of Saturday’s UEFA Champions
League final against Chelsea, and it would be unlikely that the club would be willing to
let him leave cheaply.
Arsenal will also have to factor in considerable competition too, with the likes of Spanish
giants Barcelona and Real Madrid reportedly holding a long-standing interest in Sterling.
The duo are both under contract until the summer of 2023.
