Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez should consider a January switch to Arsenal or Chelsea, according to Sky Sports pundit and Gunners legend Ray Parlour.
The 26-year-old signalled his intentions to leave the King Power Stadium last summer however a move failed to materialize, and despite the setback Mahrez has returned to the scintillating form which saw the Foxes clinch their historic league title in season 2015/16.
Mahrez has netted eight goals and provided seven assists in his 24 league appearances to date, which has led to reports linking the Algeria international with a move to a top six club, including the Gunners
“I am surprised [he’s still there]. Because he’s been superb, he really has. He had that run where he didn’t play well and now he’s got back to his best,” he told Sky Sports’ The Debate, via the Daily Star.
For some reason nobody wants to buy Riyad Mahrez from Leicester. I don’t understand.
