    Arsenal join the bidding war for Leicester star man Riyad Mahrez

    Arsenal join the race for £25m-rated Riyad Mahrez as Leicester fend off interest from Manchester United and Tottenham

    Arsenal have asked Leicester about winger Riyad Mahrez. The coveted Algeria international already has interest from the likes of Manchester United and Tottenham but has indicated he is willing to see out the season with Leicester. Mahrez has scored 14 goals in an outstanding season and is happy to finish the campaign with Leicester which has been re-affirmed by his agent Kamel Bengougam.

    Leicester bought Mahrez for £400,000 from Le Havre just over 12 months ago but his value has already rocketed to £25million. Alongside Jamie Vardy, the 24-year-old has received major plaudits from pundits and fans alike, helping fire Leicester to the top of the Premier League at Christmas.

    Alongside his 14 goals, Mahrez has provided seven assists, many of which to top scorer and team-mate Vardy. Claudio Ranieri is keen to keep hold of his star men, noting in a press conference last week that there are plans to offer fresh terms in the summer.

    He told reporters: 'I spoke to the two guys, we continue together, we can improve. Maybe at end of the season we can speak. We are in good flight now. 

    'I don't wait for their answer! If they believe in me – follow me.' 

    'I didn't speak with my owner. But he knows very well my idea, it is also his idea. For them there is a contract which they must respect.
