Leicester City midfielder Riyad Mahrez has revealed the truth regarding rumours that he is set to join Arsenal this summer.

The 26-year-old appeared to be on the brink of a move to the Emirates stadium last year after the Foxes’ historic title triumph.

However, the transfer failed to materialize and 12 months later, the Algerian international is once being deemed as an Arsenal target.

There have been reports suggesting that Arsenal are offering £50 million for the signing of Mahrez but the player himself, who was recently praised by Arsene Wenger, has confirmed that no offer has been received from the Gunners.

“It’s an honour to receive compliments like this from such a big manager in world football.” the midfielder said

“But there’s a big difference between an offer and speculation, so there is nothing on the table at the moment.”
