I don't think Mahrez would want to go to Arsenal - Wise

I don't think Mahrez would want to go to Arsenal - Wise”

Bringing forward the Naby Keita deal from the end of the season to now remains Liverpool's priority, but the option of signing Mahrez as a replacement for Philippe Coutinho is an attractive possibility for FSG.

'I was asked this week if I thought Riyad Mahrez, who has been linked with a move to Anfield, would be the ideal replacement for Coutinho but I couldn't agree, ' he told BetVictor.

Liverpool are now fourth in the Premier League, three points behind second-placed Manchester United.

The 25-year-old Brazil worldwide, who can operate as an attacking midfielder or as a winger, is one of the best players in the world and will be missed at the Reds.

The Gunners have constantly been linked with Mahrez in recent years and reportedly came close to signing him after he helped lead Leicester to the Premier League title in 2016.

During the 2016-17 campaign, the Algeria worldwide scored six goals and provided three assists in 33 league starts for the Foxes.

But Owen, who spent 13 years at Liverpool, isn't convinced the Algerian has the attributes to fit into Klopp's frontline.

The Algeria global has been linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium as a possible replacement for Alexis Sanchez, who could make a January move to Manchester City.

"I think there would be other teams that Mahrez would look at and think he's capable of going into, teams that are in a better position than Arsenal".
