Mahrez rejects Arsenal rumours and hopes to stay at Man City

Riyad Mahrez has brushed off suggestions he could be interested in a summer move to Arsenal and said he could wants to end his career at Manchester City.

The Manchester City winger worked with Mikel Arteta when the Spaniard was at the Etihad as Pep Guardiola's assistant before moving to the Emirates.

Convincing Mahrez to make the same move to London would be a major coup for the Gunners amid reports that Guardiola is willing to sell the 30-year-old along with other top stars, but the Algerian told DZ Sport after playing and scoring the winner in his country's 1-0 friendly win over Mali on Sunday: 'There is nothing about my future.

'I am well in Manchester. I will stay, God willing. I don't yet know what my situation will be, but I am happy at City - and they are the club where I want to be.

'People have spoken about me ending my career with Marseille, but that is not something I think about.

'I want to finish my career in England, with City. I don't foresee myself at Marseille.'

Mahrez - who attracted Arsenal's attention during his Leicester days before the former Foxes man chose City - has enjoyed another successful season at City.

He was part of a team that won the Premier League and EFL Cup and scored 14 goals in 48 games across all competitions, including a strike against Borussia Dortmund and three across both legs of the Champions League semi-final against Paris Saint-Germain, although the competition came to a bitterly disappointing end for Guardiola's men with a 1-0 defeat in the final to Chelsea late last month.
