Latest reports surrounding the future of Algeria and Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez is that Manchester City are chasing his services once again.

The Citizens are linked with a summer move for Mahrez according to the latest transfer news after their failure to sign him in January.

The ESPN website suggests that the Blues will rekindle their interest in the Algerian international having missed out on landing him in the January transfer window deadline.

Furthermore, it is suggested that the new EPL champions will make a fresh approach for the 27-year-old at the end of the season as Pep Guardiola looks to revive his attacking options.

Guardiola would like to add a new versatile attacking option in the summer transfer window and Mahrez's Premier League experience makes him a leading contender for the role.

On the other hand, the website has it that Mahrez is looking for a move come end of the current term as he is keen to play UEFA Champions League football and is in search of adding more silverware to his trophy collection.
