Arsenal have made Riyad Mahrez one of their top summer targets but will need to spend £25 million on the Leicester City winger, according to The Sun.

The report claims that Arsene Wenger is ready to allow Theo Walcott to leave the club this summer and is lining up this season’s PFA Player of the Year as his replacement.

Mahrez has been one of Leicester’s key stars in their push for the Premier League title this season, scoring 17 goals and registering 11 assists in 34 appearances so far.

Leicester midfielder N’Golo Kante and Borussia Monchengladbach’s Granit Xhaka are also being targeted by Wenger, who is looking to overhaul his midfield this summer.
