Just yesterday, the Gunners confirmed the arrival Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon in a record breading deal of £46 miilion which could rise to could rise to £52 pending on his performances.
The attempt to sign Mahrez simply means the North London club are ready to fight for the EPL title next season.
The 26-year old Algerian, who joined the Foxes in 2014 from Le Havre was a key player in their team that won the EPL title 12 months ago.
However, Mahrez struggles for form last season as he only managed to score six league goals in in 36 appearances compared to 17 league goals in 37 appearances in 2015/16 season.
The winger is willing to force his way out of Leicester for a bigger team and the foxes are reportedly willing to sell him at the right price.
Should the deal go through, a combination of Alexis Sanchez, Lacazette and Mahrez at Arsenal attack will surely be a threat to other Premier League clubs.
