Riyad Mahrez is ‘not bothered’ about the speculation linking him with Arsenal according to his teammate, Demari Gray.

The subject of speculation linking him with a move to Arsenal, Mahrez’s teammate doesn’t think that the constant and unending gossip-mongering will be a distraction for the Algerian.

“There is a lot of speculation around him but he doesn’t seem to be bothered by any of that, does he?” said Gray.

“He works hard and he’s a Leicester player. We’ll just do what he does, train and focus on games.

“He was the Player of the Year and we won the League, so you expect speculation but he is a great professional and concentrates on what he does and contributes to the team, as you saw against Celtic.

“It’s not really bothering him.”

This story exploded into life at the weekend when a claim was made by French site, Eurosport.fr. Since then, despite spreading across all reaches of the internet, the story has not developed in the slightest.

As long as Claudio Ranieri keeps saying Mahrez will stay at Leicester, we’ll keep believing him.
