Arsenal face £30m battle with Tottenham for Sanchez and Ozil replacement

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is preparing a replacement for the out-bound Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.

The star duo both failed to pen a new deal with Arsenal and have under nine months remaining on their contracts with the north London-based club.

Ozil and Sanchez could end up leaving Arsenal for free unless they are either sold in January or sign new deals.

According to the Mirror, Arsenal have set their sights on Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez as a replacement.

Per the Source Mahrez is keen to leave the Foxes and would apparently be open to a move to London.
