Riyad Mahrez to Liverpool: Transfer talks begin but player wants Arsenal move

And here are the latestSport News headlines...

Mahrez, who still has over three years left on his £100,000-a-week contract, had informed Leicester of his desire to leave in the summer but a move away from the former Premier League champions never came to pass due to the Foxes' £50m valuation.

Liverpool are in official contact with RB Leipzig as they attempt to bring forward Naby Keïta's arrival as Philippe Coutinho's replacement.

Rumours involving Sanchez and a move to City have intensified in recent days, with many expecting the Chilean attacker to arrive at The Etihad Stadium before the end of the January transfer window.

City may face some more problems in their bid to sign Sánchez because according to the Mirror, Arsenal are only willing to let Sánchez leave if they can get Leicester City's Riyad Mahrez.

The Gunners are reportedly chasing the Leicester star as a replacement for Alexis Sanchez, but will he get better offers than the Emirates club?

That could aid Mahrez's wish of moving to north London with a deal for the Algerian appearing easier to pull off than a move for Lemar.

The Reds have money to spend following the €160 million sale of a key creative influence to Barcelona.

The former Reds striker wrote in a column for BetVictor as he looks ahead to a crunch clash with Manchester City on Sunday: "Liverpool begin life without Philippe in what promises to be one of the games of the season played between the two most exciting sides in the division".

Gomes has faced accusations that he doesn't suit their style of play ever since he moved to the Nou Camp from Valencia.

"I don't think Mahrez would want to go there", he told Sky Sports.

According to Spanish outlet Diario Gol, Benzema has received a number of interesting proposals in case he does up sticks.
