Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez has opened up on his future amid rumors of a transfer to Arsenal.

Riyad Mahrez has poured cold water on rumors linking him with a summer move to Arsenal.

With Manchester City reportedly intent on signing Harry Kane and Jack Grealish in big-money deals, several players have been linked with exits. One of them has been Mahrez. Reports have linked the 30-year-old, along with teammate Raheem Sterling, to Arsenal recently.

But Mahrez silenced any doubts over his City future after helping Algeria beat Mali 1-0 in a friendly on Sunday.

“There is nothing about my future,” he told DZ Foot.

“I am well in Manchester. I will stay God willing.”

Mahrez has managed 39 goals and 37 assists in 142 appearances since joining City in a €67.80 million deal from Leicester in 2018.

The three-time Premier League winner is under contract at the Etihad Stadium under the summer of 2023.
