He has submitted a transfer request since the end of last season, and Leicester City said they would consider it if their asking price was met, but almost a week in August has already passed, and the 2015-16 Premier League champions are yet to receive a ‘satisfying’ offer by any club.
I know Roma came in, but nothing was accepted so there is little I can do. They are a great club who I would like to talk to but I can’t until Leicester accept a deal
Riyad Mahrez told Sky Sports, talking about Roma’s interest. The Giallorossi are the ones who have been more active than anyone else in pursuing the Algeria international, but they don’t seem willing to pay the £50 million that Leicester City are reported to be asking for one of their best players.
Clearly, it is flattering whenever you get linked with any big clubs, but as it stands, I have not talked to anyone as nobody has had a bid accepted but we nearly have a month left of the transfer window so we will see what happens
Mahrez said, before clearing out that he will continue doing things like a professional regardless of what happens with his transfer request.
Leicester know my thoughts, but I will continue to give my best for the club as I always have
were his words.
