Arsenal have more than a few quality attacking players in the squad such as the likes of Santi Cazorla, Aaron Ramsey, Alex Iwobi, Alexis Sanchez and record signing Mesut Ozil.
Therefore, manager Arsene Wenger does not need to further reinforce his attacking midfield this summer.
The North Londoners do not have a proven quality striker and they must splash the cash to sign one.
However, reports suggest that Arsenal are going to lure another playmaker in the form of Leicester City superstar Riyad Mahrez.
The Gunners were linked with Gonzalo Higuain but they can now forget about signing the Argentine star striker because he is heading to join Juventus (ESPN).
On the other hand, Arsenal are set to agree a deal worth 42 million pounds ($55 million) with the Foxes to sign the Algerian international (Mirror via Eurosport France).
Mahrez was absolutely brilliant for Leicester last season under the management of Italian boss Claudio Ranieri.
He made 39 appearances for the Premier League champions last season, scored 17 goals, provided 11 assists and deservedly won the PFA Player of the Year award – the first African player to win the coveted prize.
In your opinion, do Arsenal really need Riyad Mahrez more than a top striker?
