It’s nothing new. Arsene Wenger is habituated to being under pressure for signing big-name stars in every transfer window, but one fan seems has taken things to a new level, chasing the French manager down a beach while urging him to sign Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez. It’s obviously embarrassing for the Gunners boss.
Wenger in this video was seen casually cycling along the coast when the fan ambushes him with a very loud plea to sign last season’s Premier League Player of the Year.

Only Mahrez, only Mahrez, oke? Please!

The supporter looks to be familiar with Wenger’s stance on signings, so he made it completely clear that he would be satisfied with just Mahrez, shouting “Only Mahrez” at the top of his lungs.
If Wenger isn’t convinced after this incident, then nothing else can work.
A few days ago an Algerian news website claimed Riyad Mahrez will sign for Arsenal within a week.
The French-speaking website Le Buteur said that the 25-year-old winger will sign for the Gunners for a fee of around £37m from EPL champions Leicester City.
And the Algerian media outlet even went as far as to suggest Mahrez has ‘agreed on terms’ with Arsenal, and the only thing left to settle is for the transfer fee to be agreed.
The prospect of an attacking trio of Sanchez and Mahrez either side of Mesut Ozil has to be an alluring one for Arsenal fans. They are three of the Premier League’s best, with a proven history of creativity and goals, and would leave opponents unable to focus on one man.
Mahrez scored 17 goals as the Foxes won the Premier League title last season. He is the player who broke through the lines and drew defences out of position. And while there are a number of right-wing options at Arsenal, none can compete with Mahrez.
