Arsenal are looking to add Riyad Mahrez to Jamie Vardy in their raid of Leicester City, according to The Sun.

The Premier League champions are facing a mammoth task to keep hold of their best players following last year's fairytale success. It seems Arsenal are going to be the main buyer too. Having met Vardy's release clause and entering negotiations with the player, the Gunners have now turned their attention to Mahrez.

Mahrez, 25, also has a release clause which, according to reports, is surprisingly low. Arsenal are keen to add another wide playmaker and see Mahrez as too good a deal not to do. However, Arsenal are also thought to be leading the race for Borussia Dortmund's Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Any deal for Mahrez would also almost certainly spell the end for Theo Walcott at Arsenal, who has been linked to Leicester themselves as well as Liverpool.
