Owen: Mahrez the wrong option to replace Coutinho at Liverpool”

Riyad Mahrez won't consider a move to Arsenal given the north London club's dramatic regression, according to former Chelsea midfielder Dennis Wise.

Mahrez scored 19 goals and made 16 assists to help Leicester to beat Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur to the Premier League title.

The Algeria international 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.

"Arsenal are in a position now where someone like [Riyad] Mahrez has to go there and really pull up trees to get them back to a position where they should be", Wright said on Sky Sports' The Debate.

The African playmaker has emerged as a potential target to Liverpool FC over the past week following Philippe Coutinho's big-money move to La Liga giants Barcelona.

Liverpool are in talks to sign Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez but the Algerian is holding out on a late move from Arsenal.

Liverpool are 2-1 at BetVictor to inflict the first domestic defeat of the season on City and that's the recommended bet. If Arsenal are the only team above the top six, of course he'd go to Arsenal.

The Reds are unbeaten in their last 14 home games against City in the Premier League and will be keen to avenge their 5-0 thrashing at the Etihad in September.
