Roma are reportedly edging ever closer to signing Algeria international Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City.
Mahrez, 26, has been heavily linked with a move to the Italian club, who are desperate to fill the void left by Mohamed Salah. The Egyptian winger joined Liverpool in a big money move ahead of the 2017-18 season.
According to Corriere dello Sport, Mahrez will undergo a medical on Wednesday ahead of an expected £31.3million switch to the Giallorossi.
Mahrez has continued playing for the 2015-16 Premier League champions in pre-season despite telling the Foxes that he was eager to leave the club.

With Kelechi Iheanacho to complete a reported move to Leicester City from Manchester City it seems as if Mahrez will finally get his wish. Arsenal and Tottenham have previously been linked with a move for the wing-wizard.
