Mahrez talks underway- Arsenal are interested in signing him

Arsenal are in talks to sign Riyad Mahrez from Leicester, according to reports.

The Sun say the Gunners, who are already close to signing Foxes striker Jamie Vardy, want to sign his partner in crime too.

Vardy and Mahrez scored a combined 41 of Leicester's 68 goals in the Premier League this season as they romped to the title by a 10-point margin.

Mahrez reportedly has a "surprisingly low" release clause and Arsenal are keen to trigger it - a move which will all but end Theo Walcott's Gunners career.
