Tottenham could make a move for Riyad Mahrez this summer if he is allowed to leave Leicester City, according to The Telegraph.

Matt Law writes Mahrez expects Leicester to honour the agreement they came to last summer, which would allow the player to leave the club at the end of this season.

Mahrez signed a new deal with the Foxes at the beginning of the campaign, turning down a move to Arsenal in the process. But the Algerian is believed to be eager on an exit this summer.

The report claims Barcelona and Marseille are interested in signing Mahrez, while Spurs and Arsenal are keen on reigniting their interest in the winger.

It is believed Tottenham made an enquiry about the 26-year-old’s availability in the January, but Leicester were unwilling to sell at the time.

The reigning Premier League champions are thought to value Mahrez at over £30 million, so Spurs would have to break their transfer record to sign him.

  1. Media bullshit! He’s struggled this season and he’s the most critical of his own performances and this season he’s shown his frustration because he’s struggled to reproduce his form and you see his anger at himself when he leaves the pitch.

    He’s been talking to Ranieri and Shakey all season about how he can improve and he’s doubting himself. If he performed like this for anyone else he’d be on the bench, no doubt about it but he’s been allowed to continue playing and allowed the time to get his confidence back on the pitch instead of stewing on the bench.

    He’s a very humble bloke and one who highly doubts his own ability, this isn’t a man looking to gamble his career on a move that could easily end it. He’s settled and happy in Leicester and is only 26. Kante joined Chelsea and gave up CL football so it’s not the be all and end all for all players in the way that the media make it the only thing that’s important to a player. Zlatan and Pogba went United too.

    Regardless of all that, there’s no way would he leave for £30m, he’s got no release clause and three or four years left on his contract so we won’t be letting him leave for less than £40-50m and nobody is going to pay that after this season. He won’t leave on the cheap, no chance.

  2. Completely agree with the last comment. Media hype he’s going nowhere. He hasn’t said a word. Leicester would want 50 mill
