Riyad Mahrez

New £38m bid submitted for Leicester’s Riyad Mahrez

Back in for Mahrez

Despite recent reports suggesting that Roma had ended their interest in Riyad Mahrez, the club have submitted a new bid for the winger.

Any potential deal was thought to be dead over the weekend but Roma feel that there’s still a chance the player could move.

Calcio Marcato are reporting that Roma have submitted bid worth 38 million Euro to Leicester.

The report, which originated from journalist Nabil Djellit, goes on to say that the Foxes are now looking at possible

replacements.

Arsenal target

Mahrez has also been linked with a move to Arsenal. The Algerian is seen as Arsene Wenger’s back-up choice to Monaco’s Thomas Lemar, although the Frenchman may now end up with neither.

Mahrez started in Leicester’s 4-3 defeat at the Emirates on the opening day of the Premier League season.

Next up for Leicester is newly-promoted Brighton. It’s unclear whether or not Mahrez will be involved.
