Wenger Refuses To Deny Mahrez Bid
The Gunners manager stuck to his policy of keeping his transfer business under wraps when quizzed on his side’s reported pursuit of the Leicester City star on Saturday
Arsene Wenger refused to deny rumours Arsenal have made a bid for Riyad Mahrez when quizzed on his interest in the Leicester City star.
The Gunners have been tipped to move for Mahrez this summer and Wenger was in attendance at the Foxes’ International Champions Cup game against Paris Saint-Germain on Saturday.
When asked if he would be watching the PFA Player of the Year and if he had made a bid for him, Wenger told Bein Sports: “Yes, of course, we watch all the players, you know.
“But we play Leicester in the second game of the championship so of course it’s a good opportunity for us tonight to see them.”
Asked for a firm answer on Arsenal’s reported pursuit of Mahrez, he continued: “I cannot give you a yes or no because we do not publicise our transfer interest.
“The best way to make things happen is to keep it as secret as possible.”
