A report claims that Riyad Mahrez is unhappy that Leicester City are refusing to sanction his transfer to Arsenal, having essentially been priced out of a move.

Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez has reportedly made it known that he is unhappy with the club's decision to play hardball with Arsenal regarding a summer move.

The Algeria international intends to leave the King Power Stadium before the end of the transfer window, a year on from playing a starring role in the Foxes' famous Premier League title triumph.

Arsenal have shown a strong rumoured interest in recruiting the 26-year-old but were put off by Leicester's supposed £50m valuation, instead turning their focus to AS Monaco ace Thomas Lemar for a similar price.

According to The Mirror this has left Mahrez unhappy as he was promised that he could move on this summer, with the ex-Le Havre man fearing that he will now be priced out of a move as no offers have yet been made.

Mahrez, who managed six goals and three assists in the top flight last season, has three years left to run on the £100,000-a-week deal that he penned last year.
