Ligue 1 champions PSG thumped the 2015-16 Premier League winners Leicester 4-0 in a pre-season friendly in America on Saturday night.

Away from what happened on the pitch, however, much of the chatter surrounding the game concerned possible transfer news.

Throughout the summer, Arsenal have been linked with Leicester players. A bid for Jamie Vardy was rejected during the Euros, while more recent times have seen Arsenal turn up the pressure on Riyad Mahrez.

The Mahrez to Arsenal rumours were given a shot in the arm on Saturday night, as Arsene Wenger watched Leicester take on PSG, alongside Steve Bould.

The two Gunners men wore official Arsenal gear at the game.
