Bad for Man City & Leicester: Riyad Mahrez in talks over a Serie A move

Man City, Leicester & Riyad Mahrez

2017-18 has been a topsy-turvy year for Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez.

27-year-old Mahrez has again been superb for Leicester this season as Man City tried to sign him on the final day of the January transfer window.

The Algerian has scored nine goals and chipped in with seven assists for the Foxes in 25 Premier League games this season.

Following Man City’s move in January, many believe that Mahrez will finally leave the King Power Stadium at the end of the season.

But rather than finally completing his Sky Blues move, the Leicester star could be on his way to Serie A instead.

Indeed, CdS believe that Mahrez may already have a personal agreement with Roma, although the Giallorossi have yet to reach an agreement with Leicester.

If Roma intend to make this deal happen, then the assumption is they’ll have to pay around 50 million pounds, if not more, to get Leicester to agree to the sale.

Mahrez remains under contract at the Foxes until 2020.

West Brom vs Leicester City

Eighth in the Premier League, Leicester travel to West Brom on Saturday in the Premier League.

If West Brom retain hopes of beating the drop, the EPL basement-dwellers have to beat the Foxes this weekend.

When the sides met earlier in the season, West Brom picked upa draw at the King Power. Nacer Chadli scored for West Brom before Mahrez grabbed a late leveller.
