Riyad Mharez

Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez has responded to claims of him leaving the Premier League champions in the summer and insists he remains committed to the citizens amid speculation linking him with a move to Arsenal.

A number of City players have been linked with an exit from the club, as Pep Guardiola looks to bring in Tottenham Star Harry Kane, Jack Grealish, Haaland among others this summer.

The Algerian International and his England teammate Raheem Sterling have been linked with a possible move to the Emirates Stadium, where they hope to reunite with Mikel Arteta.

Mahrez joined City in 2018 from Leicester City and has helped his team win two Premier League titles, three League Cups, as well as an FA Cup.

And speaking after firing Algeria to a friendly victory over Mali last weekend, the 30-year-old silenced any questions over his future at City.

‘There is nothing about my future,’ Mahrez told DZ Foot.

‘I am well in Manchester. I will stay God willing.’

City Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak has revealed that the club plan on bringing ‘quality’ into the squad in multiple positions this summer.

‘One of the things I’ve learned over the years is, you need to constantly bring in talent into the team, refresh and particularly when you are at a high level and when you’re on the top,’ said Al Mubarak

‘Having won the league, it is not the time to sit back and be content. That would be your biggest mistake.

‘This is the time to send a strong message, that there’s no contentment, that you’re not satisfied with just winning the league.

‘That’s great, but you want to win it again and you are committed and you are bringing more talent that is going to compete, not for the squad, but the starting XI.

We lose a very important legend in Sergio Aguero. They are very hard shoes to fill, but I’m confident that we will find the right player to fill those shoes.

‘There are other areas within the group, within the team that obviously need investment. Not too many. It’s not about numbers, it’s about quality.

‘I think the squad is phenomenal. You don’t win the Premier League and you don’t reach the Champions League final if you don’t have an incredible squad and we have that.

‘We will bring quality into the squad in a couple of key positions.’
