Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez would be an ideal candidate to replace Alexis Sanchez at Arsenal, according to former Gunners defender Martin Keown.

Algeria international Mahrez was in impressive form as Claude Puel’s Leicester side played out a 0-0 draw against defending Premier League champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, with the Foxes particularly unfortunate not have scored in the first half.
