Leicester City To Place Heavy Price Tag On Riyad Mahrez

Leicester City are reluctant to sell Algeria winger Riyad Mahrez and will only do so for a substantial fee. The 26-year-old has confirmed he wants to leave the Foxes this summer, indicating his ambitions in a statement released on Tuesday.

In May Mahrez said that he would consider his future once the season had ended and Leicester have been aware of his unsettled nature for some time, but the club's board are adamant they want to keep their best players.

Sources at Sky Sports understand that, for any bid to be acceptable, it would have to reflect Mahrez's standing as PFA Player of the Year in 2015/16, a Ballon d'Or nominee, Premier League winner and Champions League player. Leicester have not yet received any offers for the Algeria winger but it is understood that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is a Mahrez admirer.

Mahrez has three years remaining on the new four-year contract he signed last summer - one that does not include a buyout clause.
