Algeria and Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez is reported to be on his way out of the Foxes in the upcoming transfer window.
According to The Sun, the left-footed winger will leave Leicester this English summer after failing to secure a move in the past two transfer windows.
This comes after the most recent failure on the January deadline day where his switch to Manchester City was blocked, but his exit looks certain at end of season.
According to Rob Tanner from the Leicester Mercury, he reckons the 27-year-old will be third time lucky this summer.
Pep Guardiola's side tabled a £50million offer plus £15m-rated Patrick Roberts swap, but the Foxes’ top brass felt he was worth a lot more and had no time to find an adequate replacement.
Subsequent to that foiled move, Mahrez went Awol, but has since been reintegrated back into Claude Puel’s squad and netted twice in six matches.
The Sun website reports that the English Premier League log leaders are expected to revive their interest.
On the other hand, the King Power-based club is also expected to part ways with Leonardo Ulloa, Andy King, Nigeria’s Ahmed Musa and Bartosz Kaputska who are all surplus to requirements.
