With the way Arsenal have treated the fans of the club in the last few years when it comes to signing players that the team so desperately needs, it is not a surprise that the fans, including myself, are often on the social media and on various blogs scanning for the littlest of hints that a player we have been linked with is on his way to the Emirates.
Yesterday we posted the report that Mustafi has liked the picture of Arsenal player Granit Xhaka on Instagram. We regarded it as a hint of a done deal, well it seems we were right as today skysports are claiming Arsenal have agreed personal terms with the Albanian born Germany international centre back.
Well, using the same logic, it seems Riyad Mahrez will be Arsenal’s next signing after Mustafi as the Algerian has started following Arsenal star Yaya Sanogo on twitter.

One of the readers who commented on the Mustafi article yesterday didn’t see why Mustafi can’t be following fellow Albanian but what reason does Mahrez have to be following Yaya Sanogo today?
Mahrez is an Algerian Sanogo is a Frenchman, both never played in the same team before hence absolutely no reason why Mahrez should be following him especially at this point in time when he is been linked with a move to Arsenal? If they were friends before now, how come Mahrez wasn’t following Sanogo before now?
We do not believe a deal to sign Mahrez is done but we sincerely believe the Algerian wants to move to Arsenal and we believe a deal could be agree before the transfer window officially closes in few days time. Reports today already indicated Arsenal are readying another £43 million bid for Mahrez. That’s after an initial £30 million bid for the Algerian was rejected by Leicester City which means Wenger is probably keen on signing the Algerian.
And it is not so hard to see why Wenger may want to sign Mahrez. The PFA player of the year for last season is certainly an upgrade on Theo Walcott and his signing will ensure we are no longer overly reliant on Mesut Ozil for creativity it will also annoy deluded Leicester City fans which is a big plus.
