      Still rumours of Mahrez floating around, yet he apparently preferred arsenal. I cannot believe he’d prefer to go there

      Seriously, I won't understand why we don't go for Mahrez if he's free to join us for a decent fee.

      Saw someone waving the Algerian flag after Mane's goal in the man city game.  That may be some ITK.

      Riyad Mahrez: Leicester forward 'could cost over £100m'

      Leicester City forward Riyad Mahrez could be worth more than £100m, says Foxes manager Claude Puel.

      Mahrez, 26, said in May that he wanted to leave the Foxes and Italian club Roma had three bids rejected.

      But Puel says the Algeria international - who is still being linked with a move away - is "enjoying his football" with the 2016 Premier League champions.

      "It is always the same thing about Riyad," said Puel. "It is just rumours, noise about him and other players."

      Only two players have completed permanent transfers for more than £100m.

      Paris St-Germain paid Barcelona £200m for Neymar last summer, while fellow Brazil international Philippe Coutinho completed a £142m move from Liverpool to Barcelona earlier this month.

      France striker Kylian Mbappe will cost PSG £165.7m at the end of his initial loan spell from Monaco.

      "Perhaps in the summer he will cost even more than £100m," Frenchman Puel added. "It is speculation and we cannot respond to all the speculation with information.

      "We can see Riyad smiling and enjoying his football and enjoying playing with his team-mates - and it is the same in training."

      Mahrez joined Leicester from French club Le Havre for a reported £400,000 in 2014.

      He was voted the 2016 PFA Player of the Year as he helped the Foxes to their remarkable title triumph and has scored seven goals in 23 league games this season.

      Think that line there, put a stop to any potential move Mahrez had dreamt about.   ;D

      Not worth 100m. Coutinho wasn't worth 142m, but when you consider getting shafted on Suarez, it's fair. Mahrez is worth around 50-60m.

      We have not aggressively monitored enough to formulate a plan to possibly submit an underwhelming initial bid followed by a retraction and an apology.

      Once those are complete then we can sit down and come up with a plan to get him in the Summer.

      Have some patience.

      this is the third or fourth time , got to give props to LC in holding him and to the player who seems to continue to give his all despite not getting his transfer.

      City have offered 50 million. I’d quickly offer 70 and let’s be done with it.

      Saw earlier they wouldn't even accept 90mill. I know it's just transfer talk but it wouldn't surprise me. The £50mill they initially wanted could soon look to have been a bargain with the market now having £100mill+ players.

      Riyad Mahrez hands in Leicester transfer request after bid from Manchester City

      Riyad Mahrez has handed in an official transfer request at Leicester amid an offer in excess of £50m for Manchester City, Sky Sports News understands.

      The bid is believed to be City's second for the Algeria international in this window but is well below the Foxes' valuation of the player, who also handed in a transfer request in May 2017.

      While no formal, written offer has been lodged, City representatives have made it clear what they are prepared to pay, and Leicester have responded by stating they do not want to sell Mahrez, and a bid of around £50m is far too low.

      Nevertheless, Mahrez did not go to the Leicester City training ground on Friday and has not travelled with the rest of the squad to Merseyside ahead of their game against Everton.



      Speaking earlier this month, Foxes boss Claude Puel was asked if Mahrez could cost potential suitors £100m. He said: "Perhaps; maybe in the summer he will cost even more than £100m. (But) it's just rumours, noise about him. We can see Riyad smile, enjoying his football, enjoying to play with his team-mates."

      Mahrez wanted to leave last summer and submitted a transfer request amid interest from Roma, but the Foxes refused to sell the 26-year-old after rejecting three bids from the Italian club - including a £31.8m offer.

      Speaking at the time, Mahrez said: "Out of the huge admiration and respect I hold for Leicester City, I wanted to be totally honest and transparent with them and have therefore informed the club that I feel now is the time for me to move on.

      "I had a good discussion with the chairman last summer and we agreed at that time that I would stay for another year in order to help the club as best as I could following the transition of winning the title and in the Champions League.

      "However, I am fiercely ambitious and feel that now is the time to move on to a new experience."

      City have submitted their second bid for Mahrez after confirming Leroy Sane suffered ankle ligament damage during Sunday's FA Cup fourth-round win over Cardiff.

      Sane has been ruled out for up to six weeks and is set to miss the Carabao Cup final against Arsenal as well as both legs of City's Champions League last-16 tie against Basel.

      Looks like it might be a matter of just adding a few millions and they’ll get it. Wouldn’t mind having a bit of that ambition here...

      Ambition takes careful planning and situational monitoring on a very large scale...you just can't be ambitious at the drop of a hat, it takes years of work.

      I believe we are probably going to start getting ambitious on Arda Turan, the right amount of time has now passed to where we might just pull something out of the hat.

      If Man City get him, we can surely be very ashamed of ourselves. One of their best players is INJURED, they invest heavily in a proven EPL talent; we SELL one of our best players but do absolutely nothing.

      Pay it, it would go a long long way to filling the void left by Coutinho, plus instantly give cover for Mane and Salah.
