Koscielny, Ozil and Giroud back for Arsenal?

Riyad Mahrez celebrates scoring the first goal for Leicester City during Barclays Premier League game at Liberty Stadium on December 5, 2015.

Leicester City, the English Premier League (PL) champions have confirmed that their Algerian global, Riyad Mahrez, has signed a new four-year deal to stay with the club.

With Wes Morgan standing out at the heart of the defense, Leicester sported a relentless work rate reminiscent of last season, something which they lacked in their 2-1 season-opening loss at Hull.

There was furious speculation all summer that Arsenal are very much interested in snaring the winger away from Leicester, and they also reportedly slapped in bids for him earlier this month.

Arsenal fans meanwhile are being rejected by the likes of Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez and are venting their frustration at the long term gunners boss.

"Our football is a lot of energy, so if we keep all the players, all the mentality, I think we can do some good things this year as well". We are strong and we believe.

Arsenal was the team most likely to sign him in England but once again they are left frustrated by a talented Fox - just as they were when they thought they were about to sign Vardy before Euro 2016.

Of the trio, Koscielny appears the most likely candidate Wenger could play given that Calum Chambers and Rob Holding are the only alternatives.

The 32-year-old played every minute of last season's title-winning campaign, having formed an impressive partnership with Robert Huth at the back, and has made 197 appearances for the club having joined from Nottingham Forest in 2012.

Get 8/1 enhanced odds on Arsenal to beat Leicester City on Saturday evening. It's normal other managers look at Leicester players. We have a good spirit and work well on the training ground.
