'I Don't Think Mahrez Would Want to Go to Arsenal' - Wise

'I Don't Think Mahrez Would Want to Go to Arsenal' - Wise

The Daily Express is reporting that the Algeria global has emerged as a target for the Merseyside outfit after Coutinho completed his big-money transfer to Barcelona on Monday.

Rumours involving Sanchez and a move to City have intensified in recent days, with many expecting the Chilean attacker to arrive at The Etihad Stadium before the end of the January transfer window.

Riyad Mahrez is in talks with Liverpool FC about the possibility of replacing Philippe Coutinho at Anfield - but he'd rather join Arsenal, according to reports in the British media.

The Merseyside outfit are on the lookout for a replacement for Phillippe Coutinho, who completed his move to Barcelona earlier this week and have identified Mahrez as their top target.

"I'd have him in a heartbeat, but I heard a story that Klopp wasn't that keen on him, which is disappointing, but I think he'd be absolutely fantastic at Liverpool", Nicol told ESPN.

Mahrez has been in excellent form this season, with seven goals and seven assists in the Premier League.

"I think there would be other teams that Mahrez would look at and think he's capable of going into, teams that are in a better position than Arsenal".

The former Le Havre star has since flourished under new manager Claude Puel in recent months, and he could attract further interest in his services if he puts in a strong display when Leicester travel to Chelsea on Saturday (13 January).
