Arsenal have agreed personal terms with the Leicester City star, according to reports in France.

Leicester's Riyad Mahrez

Arsenal have agreed personal terms with Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez, but both clubs are yet to agree on a transfer fee according to Le Buteur.

The 25-year-old is one of the hottest properties in England after inspiring the Foxes to Premier League glory last season, winning the PFA Player of the Year in the process.

The Algerian winger has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal over the past few days and weeks.

And Le Buteur report now that Mahrez has agreed personal terms with the Gunners, who have signed only one other established player this summer in Grant Xhaka, for a reported £30 million back in June.

That being said, the report goes on to claim that Arsenal and Leicester have not yet agreed on figures in a claim which might worry fans of the North London club.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger in the stands

Manager Arsene Wenger is notoriously frugal when it comes to transfers, and the Frenchman will certainly not be held to ransom by any club over a player.

Arsenal supporters could justifiably worry that Wenger's unwavering stance over transfers could scupper the deal, but time will tell whether both clubs can come to a compromise.
