Reports: African Star To Replace Alexis Sanchez At Arsenal

An African superstar is reportedly being lined up by Arsenal to replace Chilean talisman Alexis Sanchez.

8 Stars Who Forced Their Own Transfers

According to the Daily Express, the Gunners are looking at Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez as a possible replacement for Sanchez.

The 2016 BBC African Player of the Year has put in a transfer request with the Foxes as he is looking to join a club that plays regular European football.

The Algeria international experienced his first taste of the Champions League football last season after helping Leicester claim the Premier League title in the 2015/16 campaign.

The report suggested that Leicester are understood to want at least £40 million (R684 million) for the 26-year-old playmaker.

Arsenal are hoping to keep Sanchez at the Emirates, but many are expecting him to make a move to league rivals Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola is said to be a big admirer of the 28-year-old, and would like to work alongside him again.

That will be a good move for arsenal but play him as a winger and use Welback as a striker together

no because he is not a striker and does not score more than 20 goals
