Arsenal have made a bid of £35m for Leicester winger Riyad Mahrez, , according to L’equipe journalist Gilles Favard.

Favard reports that Arsenal initially made had a £30m bid for Riyad Mahrez rejected.

However, he also claimed that Arsenal would go back in for the winger as Arsene Wenger aims to improve his squad before the season begins.

That was then followed up with the news that a £35m bid had been made.

If Arsenal are to sign Mahrez, and it does seem unlikely, they will have to go an awful lot higher than £35m.

Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri confirmed on Wednesday that Mahrez has no release clause, and will stay at the club.

“He stays with us,” Ranieri said. “We want to keep all our players.

“Of course, Kante had a [release] clause and Chelsea paid it but Riyad does not have the clause and he will stay with us.”

So there, Arsenal.
