According to latest reports from Mirror, Arsenal are planning a massive move with a 75 million euro double swoop for Leicester City’s Riyad Mahrez and Lyon’s star forward Alexandre Lacazette.

Arsene Wenger is reportedly keen to increase his attacking options as Arsenal were not great in front of goal last season.

Reports yesterday suggested that Gunners are planning to submit a massive 42 million Euro bid for Leicester City’s Riyad Mahrez as the player is reportedly interested in a move to the Emirates.

Mahrez who has scored 17 goals and assisted further 11 goals last season in Premier League will add great depth to Arsenal’s attack. However, Leicester City’s manager Claudio Ranieri said: “It is good for you [the media] not for us.

“Did you see how Riyad is happy? He played so well, worked so hard for the team, he scored a goal and he stays with us.

“It is very important [to keep him], he is one of our stars. Other teams maybe have more stars and maybe he doesn’t play at the same level, because maybe he is on the bench, so it is much better he stays with me.

“Maybe tomorrow some newspapers say £100million, that is good – keep going. It is only speculation.”

One of the long-standing targets of Arsenal is Lyon’s star forward Alexandre Lacazette. The 25-year old has drawn interest from West Ham whose bids got rejected by Lyon. The player is reportedly valued at 40 million euros by Lyon as he looks to finally move away from the club.

Arsene Wenger is keen to finish the signings of the dynamic duo before the start of Premier League campaign where Arsenal faces Liverpool on August 14.
