Premier League champions Leicester City are reportedly preparing for the departure of Algerian Riyad Mahrez, even if they avoid relegation.
Mahrez, who was named the PFA Player of the Year last season as Leicester romped to a stunning title triumph, is likely to seek a move away after the team’s major dip in form, according to the Daily Mail.
The Algerian was strongly linked with a move to Arsenal last year and even admitted to having talks with the London club. This new development may pave the way for a move to the Emirates.
The Foxes are looking at signing Norwegian attacking midfielder Mohamed Elyounoussi as a potential replacement for Mahrez.
