While reports suggest that he may be on his way to Arsenal in a £42million deal, Riyad Mahrez lined out for Leicester City in the International Champions Cup against Celtic at Parkhead on Saturday.

After a goalless first-half, the Algerian international produced a moment of trademark magic just after the break, highlighting just why is he such a sought after player.

Picking up the ball on the right flank, Mahrez headed for the Celtic box and cut inside onto his trusty left-foot, before unleashing a superb curling effort which left ‘keeper Craig Gordon with no chance…

We’ve seen him do that before, haven’t we!?

While the Celtic defending was hardly top-notch, Mahrez still showed superb skill to create the chance for himself and then finish it off in fine style

Playing in red for the Foxes on Saturday, one wonders if the wing-wizard will be lining out in the red and white of Arsenal when the new season kicks off.
