Leicester City will not relent in their determination to retain Riyad Mahrez and other key players, according to manager Craig Shakespeare.
The Foxes have rebuffed multiple offers from Italian giants Roma for the Algerian attacking midfielder, even though he has put in a transfer request.
Danny Drinkwater has also been linked with a move away from the King Power Stadium, but Leicester are refusing to budge.
"We don't want to be a selling club, we want to add to it," said Shakespeare ahead of his side’s Premier league season opener against Arsenal on Friday night.
"We don't want to sell our best players. The speculation is always going to be out there at this time of year.
"You know when you have good players there might be an interest in them. You have to deal with reality but also keep a calmness about you as well."
