Leicester City fans will still be cheerful following their side's incredible Premier League title-winning season, but it's safe to say that they will also be slightly worried right now. 

That's because two of their best players - Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez - are being linked to rivals Arsenal.

It has been well documented, of course, that the Gunners have already triggered Vardy's £22 million release clause, while it has recently been speculated that Mahrez could follow him to north London in this transfer window.

As it stands, though, both players belong to Leicester. Vardy, who struck 24 goals in England's elite division last season, hasn't made a decision over his long-term future in the game. 

The 29-year-old is currently in France preparing for England's Euro 2016 campaign and it appears that he's now going to decide whether or not to join the Gunners after the prestigious tournament. 

Mahrez on the move? 

It's uncertain, meanwhile, as to whether Mahrez would be interested in a move to Arsenal, but it certainly wouldn't come as a surprise if Arsene Wenger and co. made their move. 

Mahrez was the standout player in the Premier League last season, claiming the PFA Player of the Year award. 

Lineker tweet 

As you can imagine, then, it was only a matter of time before Match of the Day presenter - and Leicester City legend - Gary Lineker had his say on the speculation. 

Indeed, Lineker has taken to social media to make his feelings quite clear. As you can see below, the ex-England international has told Arsenal to 'just bugger off'. 

There were, of course, a number of responses to Lineker's tweet, but it's safe to say that one was better than the rest. 

As you can see below, one fan responded to Lineker by tweeting: 'They'll bid for our team spirit next...'

It's most definitely going to be an interesting period for all involved and there could yet be a number of twists and turns on the horizon. 

Leicester City fans will still be hoping that their elite players stay at the club as they prepare to embark on their first ever Champions League campaign. 

Do you think Arsenal will sign Vardy and Mahrez this summer? Have your say below!
