Leicester Ready To Sell Mahrez

Leicester City are prepared to sell Algerian star Riyad Mahrez in this month’s transfer window – but only for the right price.

According to France Football, the Foxes will relent in their battle to keep the 26-year-old, who tried to force a move away from the King Power Stadium at the start of the season.

Bookmakers in the UK have made Mahrez odds-on favourite to leave Leicester, with the Algerian having shown eye-catching form in recent weeks under new manager Claude Puel.

City’s Premier League rivals Arsenal and Chelsea are the favourites to land the player, while Roma are also in the picture, having had a strong bid for the Algerian rejected by the Foxes in mid-2017.

Leicester are expected to ask for at least €55-million in exchange for the North African, who has registered seven goals and seven assists in 22 Premier League appearances this season.
