Richard keys is saying alexis will be going city and mahrez will be coming in next to replace him. Maybe he knows something from people in the game but I'm not really a fan of this move. Alexis with his contact will fetch us 50m max I reckon. Mahrez will cost 40m. Unless alexis is being a complete git about leaving is that really worth doing. Personally I'd rather keep him another year then lose him for free then look for someone new. Not like we're short on money surely.

I don't want to sell him. We really need to keep him!

However, 50 mil for Sanchez and get rid of some of the dross we have in the team, we could make about 70/ 80 mil!

That covers the lacazette transfer. Bring in Mahrez and then add someone say Carvalho in the center?

5 at the back,
ramsey and carvalho (or xhaka and carvalho) in the middle.
Mahrez, Ozil and Lacazette from 3! (iwobi, welbeck, Ox and Walcott if needed)

If Sanchez forces a move, then Lacazette and Mahrez wouldn't be too bad in the circumstances.

sanchez out for 50 mill would be great he is only starting his holidays then needs a pre season he was also carrying an injury he prob won't be fully fit and effective until end of october if he went to city he would not walk into the team so they prob would not get much out of him until december january anyway, i say say take it, unless he wants an extension of course .

I think Mahrez would be a massive waste of money.
Was relatively unknown before he had a great season with Leicester.
Had a massive sulk last year because he didn't get his move and will
be same again this season. Do not want!

Much rather we go for Lemar! Younger and has a lot more to offer!

05 Jul 2017 15:09:35
I'm hoping with say the expected 2 signings and mahrez that reports are true and alexis just wants to see ambition. That may convince him to stay. Who knows.

05 Jul 2017 15:16:40
Disagree bud. So what if was unheard of 3 years ago?

I seem to remember Hazard having a sulk too the season before last (after also winning player of the year) , everyone forgets that after last season. Mahrez still has the quality I'm sure. Granted could be a gamble, but what transfer isn't (aside players who Arsenal simply can't get) ?

05 Jul 2017 15:41:53
Its a fair point but he is nowhere in Hazards league.
Hazard has been doing it consistently since his breakthrough season at Lille and he has had one poor season at Chelsea. Mahrez only had one great season. Can you really see Mahrez replicating his Leicester title winning form for us and even coming close to winning player of the season? I just can't. I'd love to be wrong but I still think this is a silly transfer.

05 Jul 2017 16:02:55
I understand illbill, but at least he HAS done it, and is used to the PL. Who's to say Lemur won't take a season to settle into the lifestyle? Given our realistic options I say it's worth a punt and not a massive waste of money. Coyg.

05 Jul 2017 16:45:13
Yeah but so did loads of players. for example Amr Zaki, Roque Santa Cruz and Michu. All had amazing seasons in the premier league and never replicated the form again. So saying he HAS done it hardly has any credibility because of 1 season.

Lemar is the far better option imo, he has pace, can finish, great skills, can pick out a pass and is 5 years younger. Looks to me as he has much more to offer in the long run than Mahrez.
I'm guessing you don't agree but everyone is entitled to their own opinion. All transfers are risky but i'd much rather us sign Lemar if we had a choice out of the 2 players.

05 Jul 2017 16:46:27
Spot on for me scar. I think he could be a huge signing. It's no more of a gamble than lacazette is. Maybe less of a gamble as he is proven in the prem. just hope he is a brilliant addition to the team not alexis'a replacement.

05 Jul 2017 17:17:57
Mahrez isn't good enough We need someone much better than him.

05 Jul 2017 17:44:34
Yeah but how many great seasons has Lemar had? Don't get me wrong I like him but I fail to see that much more logic in signing him over Mahrez aside his age and he might have a nicer personality!

Mahrez's champions league stats weren't too shabby.

05 Jul 2017 18:12:15
Mahrez is top quality, the only question marks are his price and his temperament.

05 Jul 2017 20:52:27
Steve you are bang on this time. Mahrez can be a beast for us and it's all about motivation. I hope we have enough leadership to keep him focused.

06 Jul 2017 08:55:59
Mahrez isn't good enough for Arsenal despite being premier league player of the year in 2016?
Arsenal are way to good for the likes of Mahrez despite the fact we are asking him to leave a team that has achieved two things in the last 2 seasons we haven't got close to achieving, a premier league title and a champions league QF.
Sorry but some fans need to pop down to spec savers and get some real glasses rather than those special Arsenal ones because they are giving them a very distorted veiw of reality.

Mahrez is a good player. I think he would flourish in a team with more quality around him. his dribbling skills are better that Lemar's. His attitude problems are disappointing though.
