Mahrez prefers Arsenal move over Liverpool - report

13 Enero 2018

The 26-year-old has been identified by Jurgen Klopp as a replacement for Philippe Coutinho and Liverpool have cash to spend following the Brazilian's £142million move to the Camp Nou.

Liverpool have reportedly begun negotiations with Leicester City over a potential move for Riyad Mahrez, though the Algerian is said to favour a switch to Arsenal during the winter transfer window.

Jose Mourinho's club reached out yesterday to the Gunners, testing the water over whether they would be willing to accept £25million for the Chile forward.

Riyad Mahrez won't consider a move to Arsenal given the north London club's dramatic regression, according to former Chelsea midfielder Dennis Wise.


According to Don Balon, the Barcelona boss has been forced by chiefs to take Gomes off his list of available players.

Arsenal really is the natural fit for Mahrez, where he could play in the same position as Sanchez but be more of a creator for Alexandre Lacazette than Sanchez is.

"Insiders are concerned that Arsenal could try to delay the deal, as they did during the summer when they only became receptive to offers in the final three days of the transfer window, but there is a cautious optimism that they will get their man this time around", he added.

"I don't think Mahrez would want to go there", Wise told The Debate on Sky Sports on Wednesday night.

Benzema has failed to show his best form this term and that has coincided with Real slipping 16 points adrift of La Liga leaders Barcelona.

Jurgen Klopp now has a hole to plug in his side, with various options being mooted as those at Anfield prepare to dip into the January market.

Real boss Zinedine Zidane is known to be a huge fan of his compatriot and has resisted past attempts to sell him.

Mahrez has seven goals to his name in the current campaign and a further seven assists.
