    This isn’t a “justification” post, moreso one that is trying to explain the Mahrez interest as being something that isn’t as short term as simply going for him just because Sane is injured.

    The way I see it is that he’s an alternative to Sanchez. As we all know, City were after another attacker by virtue of a long-term interest in Sanchez and we were all conditioned - both City and Arsenal fans alike - to thinking him signing for City was pretty much a formality until United came in for him. So it’s not unreasonable to think that the club switched targets to Mahrez. It’s rumoured that they made enquiries earlier in the window - possibly after Sanchez fell through but before Sane got injured - and perhaps Sane’s injury has impacted on the urgency to try and get the deal done this month but it won’t be the only reason.

    Do we need him? In fairness, it’s not just opposition fans asking that question. 2 of my mates texted me yesterday and asked exactly that, and personally I see Laporte as being a more important signing. However, we do only have 2 genuine wingers in the squad - one of whom is injured for possibly the next 6 weeks - and we’re still in 4 competitions. The likes of Foden and Diaz aren’t genuine wingers and in any case I think Foden is still injured.

    This is the wrong day for you to glorify your soulless club in a Arsenal forum.

    In mitigation, I’m posting in the non-Arsenal transfer thread where there is an active discussion about Mahrez possibly going to City. I’m not glorifying anything and other posters have concurred with some of my points. However, I do take your point about it being the wrong day and perhaps should’ve thought about that before posting.

    We should be going for Mangala, He's been great for City this season when he's played. Won't cost much either, would certainly prefer him over Evans.

    The SSN deadline day coverage is getting too boring and cringy

    Pep and City are bitter after Sanchez deal went haywire. Cannot see them doing us any favors at this point.

  11. My guess is Mangala, Yaya Toure or Delph.

    Toure would be big for them.

    I’d say Mangala. Leicester have been interested in Evans so are looking for a defender and City don’t need him.

    A lot of City fans on twitter are saying Yaya :eek:

    Doesn't look like it'll be Mangala

    They afford his wages?

    Yaya probably makes £100k more a week than Mahrez, but they got Ulloa and Musa off the books so maybe they can make up the difference

    Maybe not. Could’ve changed since then though like the Sturridge one the other day.

    Yaya wouldn’t make any sense from a Leicester point of view though. That’s basically £65m with or without the player. Toure is worth **** all at this stage in his career. He’s ****ing 35 soon.

    On a more general note, how on earth are clubs expected to prepare for and play a league game on deadline day? Leicester are in a position where they are receiving approaches for their best player at the same time as having to prepare to play Everton.

    This season more than any has demonstrated the shift in power towards the TV companies, clubs are entirely at the mercy of TV scheduling. It can't be sustainable to have such little regard for the actual process of training and playing professional athletes.
