This Arsenal fan is sure that the Gunners will sign Riyad Mahrez this summer...

Arsenal have been linked with a move to sign Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City in the transfer window but there has been no official word from the club about a possible deal.

However, that has not stopped one confident fan from showing his faith in Arsenal completing the deal in the coming weeks.

Arsenal have been heavily linked with a move to sign Mahrez in recent days, after reports which originated in France over the weekend, claimed that the Gunners are closing in on his signature.

Mahrez would represent a significant signing for the north London club, who have thus far only signed midfielder Granit Xhaka, defender Rob Holding and striker Takuma Asano this summer.

And the recent speculation about Mahrez’s potential move to The Emirates has prompted one fan to back the Gunners to complete the deal by purchasing Arsenal’s new home shirt with the winger’s name on the back, along with the number 26.
