Arsenal fans, it’s happened again.

Fans in North London are all too used to being heavily linked with a move for a player, only to see him move elsewhere or decide to remain at his club, and this summer transfer window seems to be no different.


The Gunners have been linked with moves for the likes of Gonzalo Higuain, Jamie Vardy, N’Golo Kante, and Julian Draxler with all of those moves failing to materialise.

If Arsenal fans thought things could only get better, they were wrong.

On Wednesday, Leicester City announced that Algerian star Riyad Mahrez, who has been linked with a big money move to the Emirates all summer has just penned a new long term contract with the Foxes.

Over the last several weeks it was understood that Arsenal were pursuing a deal to sign the 25-year-old, and that Gunners boss Arsene Wenger was planning to step up his interest in the player before the end of the summer transfer window.

But it seems that once again the North London side have missed out on another potentially blockbuster deal.

In the aftermath of Leicester’s announcement, disillusioned Arsenal fans took to Twitter to have their say.

It seems that Arsenal fans predicted nothing less.

Check out the Tweets below.
