That Arsenal needs a striker is a fact that everyone accepts. But alot of the Arsenal fan base believes we need a right winger as well. And I personally agree with this school of thought. And it appears Wenger also agrees as reports claim Arsenal have triggered the release clause of Riyad Mahrez and the Algerian will in a matter of days become a Gunner.
According to reports, Arsenal have been talking with the agents of Mahrez for weeks and have now triggered his release clause and is very keen on moving to Arsenal. Unlikely Vardy, Mahrez is said to have made up his mind and will be undergoing a medical with Arsenal in a couple of weeks.
Arsenal were initially thought to be in talks with Leicester City for a player plus cash deal that will see Theo Walcott move to Leicester while Mahrez moves to Arsenal. Unfortunately Walcott doesn’t want to leave the Emirates any time soon but this hasn’t stopped Wenger from triggering the release clause of Jamie Vardy.
If this report is true, one can only hope Wenger and his team have done their assignment perfectly well and not being used by Mahrez and his agent to get a new contract from Leicester City like Jamie Vardy did.
