Riyad Mahrez


#1330

If we really after Mahrez we would have already signed him.

Doesn’t seem to have been much in this from the start.


#1331

Was already impressed by Mahrez when Leicester played us at the Emirates in february 2015. He ripped us apart.


#1332

I blame @Bl1nk . He prematurely made a new unlisted Mahrez thread in the players section 3 weeks ago, and now it’s conveniently disappeared in the last few days :eyes:


#1333

Mahrez is thirsty for Arsenal.

Imagine him doing this for us :star_struck:


#1335

Wenger would tell him to pass :hipster:


#1336

Mahrez, Ozil, Alexis and Lacazette is an attack that gives me an OMG factor.


#1337

Oh another player that dicks about on the edge of the box and gets tackled, JUST WHAT WE NEED.

:wink:


#1338

Are you serious? I’d be fucking fuming he didn’t pass the ball the 2/3 chances he had before being tackled


#1339

You’ll be fuming when he isn’t playing in the French second division in the next few years.

He wants us bad. Wish we would just sign him instead of messing about with Lemar


#1341

Sounds like he’s going to do an Odemwingie and just rock up to the Emirates on deadline day!


#1342

As long as he doesn’t bring Odemwingie with him, that sounds good.


#1343

Nope he will bring Kalou


#1344

I’d be more than happy with Mahrez…wanted us to sign him last summer. Leicester are reported to be asking for £40m for him which against current prices isn’t bad. I’m sure a £35m offer with £5m extras would do the trick.

Love us to have the deal done by 11th Aug and see him line up against Vardy!


#1345

Hopefully he is gonna push for a move.


#1346

If it’s Lemar OR Mahrez, i cannot fathom any version of events where Mahrez is the superior option, no matter how long it takes to get a deal over the line.

However, if the Mahrez deal becomes at serious risk of being compromised due to Roma, then get it over the fucking line.

Squad registry is for September right? cross that bridge when it comes to it.


#1347

sign both Lemar and Mahrez, simples


#1348

I’d rather force Sanchez to stay if Mahrez is the only other option.

There are a couple of interesting younger French wingers who’ll have a year of experience under their belt then.


#1349

Not that I don’t believe you, just curious who you’re referring to?
