Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez has called recent praise from Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger “an honour” but says he has yet to receive an offer from the London side.
Wenger suggested the Gunners could make an offer for the 2015-16 PFA Player of the Season, who announced his desire to leave Leicester last month.
However, the 26-year-old Algeria international told Elheddaf Television that offer has yet to materialise.
“It is an honour to receive compliments like this from such a big manager in world football,” Mahrez said.
“But there is a big difference between words, speculation and an offer, so there is nothing on the table at the moment. As he [Wenger] went on to say, there is nothing concrete, so I will not dwell on that too much yet.
“The chairman and I agreed that I would stay another year at the club and that he would let me leave at the end of the season.
“I think it would be the right time for me to leave, I have experienced everything at this football club.
“I went from the Championship to the Premier League, I stayed up with the team the next season, we won the Premier League, I won the PFA player of the year award, I played the Champions League, so we did something quite exceptional.
“We will see what the future holds for me. I sincerely do not know where I will play next season.”
