Arsenal fans have gotten used to looking at papers early in the morning and seeing other clubs sign players while Wenger waits for the right person.
But the story of one Riyad Mahrez, moving closer to the Emirates has captured the imagination of millions of fans of the club and it now looks like this story will go deep into the transfer window ahead of the next season.
It was earlier reported that the PFA Player of the Year for the previous season has revealed that he will join Arsenal this summer but just a day later, Claudio Ranieri, the manager who took the Foxes to a Premier League title revealed that Mahrez is happy at the King Power and that he is not really looking to move away this summer.
But that has not stopped the papers reporting various incidents in the story and one such incident that has seen the Arsenal fans and Leicester City fans go berserk recently was a twitter post by the official Leicester City twitter feed.
The Foxes posted a picture onto their Twitter account to announce the renewal of their official logistics partnership for the 2016/17 season with DHL.
Here is the tweet:

It did not take long for the Arsenal fans to spot that the Algerian international was absent from the shot.
The whole team is seen on a flight of steps leading to a plane but on closer scrutiny, it is clear that the Arsenal target is not been seen in the picture.
This news broke loose very quickly as fans around the world felt that this was the best clue that the 25-year old will leave Leicester City this summer.
But this may not really be true with many possible reasons for the winger’s absence from the photo.
He may simply have not been present during the photo-shoot which will not go down with the Gunners really well.
It is also clear that the star striker Jamie Vardy is also absent from the picture. The England international signed a new contract just a month ago but is absent from this picture insisting that Mahrez’s absence does not convey a big message to the fans.
However, the Gunners’ fans and the Leicester City fans went crazy on twitter when the picture broke out. Here is a list of the best tweets on this story:
