The 25-year-old Algerian was hotly tipped to leave the King Power Stadium following a stunning season with the Midlands side, with the tricky play-maker contributing with 17 goals and 11 assists on the way to the clubs first ever league title.
After Arsene Wenger had already failed in the signing of fellow team-mate Jamie Vardy, Mahrez was seen by many Gunners fans as the player less likely to turn down such a big move to the London side. However, despite losing key midfielder Kante to Chelsea, Mahrez has clearly put his trust in the possibility that the club can go on to achieve bigger and better things.
Something this Arsenal fan clearly didn’t see coming…
