Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez is not happy with his lack of gametime at the Etihad Stadium, according to the Daily Mail.
They report that the Algerian has made it known that he is not happy with Pep Guardiola for the amount he has been playing him in the title run-in.
That comes not even a year after he joined the champions for a club-record fee that the BBC reported at the time was £60m.
Before that, in January 2018, the Daily Mail reported that Arsenal were keen on the winger while he was at Leicester – so should Mahrez’s discontent be of interest to Unai Emery?
Mahrez remains an outstanding player, capable of causing havoc up against Premier League defences and Arsenal need improvement in wide areas.
If there’s a chance that Mahrez could be on the market then Emery – despite the fact it was Arsene Wenger in charge when Arsenal were credited with that interest in him – should be right at the front of the queue.
They would likely be able to offer him more regular gametime than City can; the opportunity to be among the main creative forces in a side again, as opposed to being a squad player.
