Leicester City transfer report: Roma plotting fresh move for Riyad Mahrez in January
Will Riyad Mahrez leave Leicester City in January?
Thursday, December 7, 2017
Serie A giants Roma are planning to make a fresh January move for Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez.
The Algeria international was in high demand over the summer and came close to forcing through a move to the Stadio Olimpico.
However, Leicester resisted letting Mahrez leave and the attacking midfielder has since shown glimpses of his best form at the King Power Stadium this season.
But, according to Calciomercato, the Foxes’ resolve could be tested further in January with Roma pondering a fresh move for Mahrez.
Leicester’s valuation of the player continues to rise and Roma may have to part with close to £45m in order to prize away the midfielder.
Barcelona have also held an interest in Mahrez in the past but are not expected to join the race for his signature when the window reopens next month.
