What are the odds for Riyad Mahrez staying at Leicester?


Riyad Mahrez is now odds-on at 4/11 with SkyBet to stay at Leicester City.

The Algerian is being strongly linked with Arsenal, with Arsene Wener remaining coy on whether he would be making a bid.

The Foxes are desperate to keep hold of their star man, who scored 18 goals and created 11 assists last season.


Manager Claudio Ranieri has been trying to convince him to stay, with Mahrez’ feelings on the subject not publicly known. The only other available odds on this special are for the playmaker to join Arsenal by September 3rd, which you can get at 15/8.

Strangely enough, Leicester owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha may have had an effect on those odds after posting this on Instagram, with the caption:

VS: You Not for sale!!
Mahrez: Ok boss

Just days, earlier, he also posted this, revealing once again a bizarre penchant for Mahrez’ ears. Take a look at the caption on this one.

Happy together ⚽️.#ontraining #lagalaxy #lcfcth #kingpower #icc #championcup @riyadmahrez26.7 #fearless #lcfc

Vichai might seem the eccentric, quirky owner of everyone’s favourite underdogs, but he’s nothing if not a smart businessman, who knows exactly what he’s doing with these pictures.
