Riyad Mahrez

Leicester City, the English Premier League (PL) champions have confirmed that their Algerian worldwide, Riyad Mahrez, has signed a new four year deal to stay with the club.

Reigning champions Leicester City FC and contending squad Arsenal will both try to redeem themselves from their respective opening game defeats as they face each other in a 2016-2017 Premier League season match on match On Match day 2 at the King Power stadium on Saturday, August 20.

Following an outpouring of requests, Get French Football News will attempt to clarify the reporting in France from last week that suggested that Riyad Mahrez was the subject of offers from Arsenal, and could have even been prepared to force a move away from Leicester.

Arsenal have suffered yet more frustration on the transfer front after top target Riyad Mahrez penned a new deal with Leicester City.

Buoyed by his team's encouraging 3-1 win at Bournemouth, which included a debut league goal from Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Jose Mourinho takes charge for his first league game at Old Trafford.

"We are now in the Champions League and we need something more to play against the big teams", said manager Ranieri.

"Leicester are a good team. It is important to have a lot of quality players to choose from". But the England global chose to snub Arsenal and sign a new four-year deal worth £100 000-a-week at the King Power Stadium.And ahead of Arsenal's trip to Leicester today (6:30pm), Wenger claimed Vardy never told him why he turned down the move."He never gave me a reason why he did not want to come, but look, you have to respect the decisions of people", Wenger said. "We are happy with his performance but I was happy with the performance of all my players". I've achieved good things with this club.

"We spoke together last season and also in pre-season".

The Wales worldwide had to play understudy to Drinkwater and Kante last season but started in Leicester's opening-day 2-1 defeat at Hull with Kante now at Chelsea.

Arsenal beat Leicester both home and away in the league last season.

"When you go for somebody you want him to join you but you have to respect the decision, we are all professional people".

After the season ended with rumors swirling about a possible transfer, Mahrez's agent Kamel Bengougam said it was only "50-50" that he'd stay.
