Wenger plays down Mahrez rumours


Arsene Wenger has played down suggestions that Arsenal could try and sign Leicester's Riyad Mahrez in the summer.

Mahrez's has been key to Leicester's push for the Premier League title, scoring 16 goals for the Foxes, and his success has sparked the inevitable speculation that he could be on the move in the summer.

With Arsenal struggling in front of goal this season, there have been reports that Wenger would make a move for Mahrez in the summer, but the Frenchman insists that is not the case.

"I wouldn’t speak about at this time of the season, because it wouldn’t be respectful to Leicester. And anyway, that’s not the case," Wenger said.

The manager has also dismissed claims that Arsenal face a battle to keep Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez at the Emirates Stadium.

Both players have two years left on their current deals and Wenger has confirmed talks are underway about contract extensions.

"You know these two players have two years contract to go at the end of the season. We’re not in a hurry," Wenger stated. "We are talking. The players are very keen to stay."
