A new club wants Riyad Mahrez after Roma drop interest


Riyad Mahrez could still find a way out of Leicester City this summer despite Roma all but dropping their interest in the playmaker.

The Algerian handed in a transfer request in May, leaving Craig Shakespeare plenty of time to find a replacement.

However, the Foxes are refusing to accept anything less than £50million for one of the stars of their title-winning campaign, hence why Roma have given up.

The Mirror report that such a price isn’t putting off all Mahrez’s suitors, as Inter Milan are now ready to enter the race.

The Nerazzurri’s director of football Walter Sabatini has approached Leicester, though his club may have to stump up £18m more than Roma’s most recent bid of £32m if they are serious about landing Mahrez.

The 26-year-old contributed to nine goals last season, in comparison to 28 in 2015/2016.

Shakespeare has been active in the transfer market, bringing in the likes of Kelechi Iheanacho, Vicente Iborra, Harry Maguire. A successor to Mahrez continues to allude him, and it’s not inconceivable that the player will still be at the King Power come the end of the month.
