Arsenal transfer BLOW! Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez in talks with Roma

14 Jul

Roma have held talks with the agent of Leicester City star and Arsenal target Riyad Mahrez, according to reports in Italy.

The winger wants to leave the King Power this summer after the club missed out on Champions League qualification last season.

Arsenal have been linked with the Algerian, while French champions Monaco are also tracking his situation closely.

But it is Roma who are seemingly the frontrunners at the moment and, according to Leggo, they have now held talks with Mahrez’s agent.

The Italian club’s new sporting director, Monchi, reportedly met with Mahrez’s agent on Thursday to lay the groundwork for a formal offer.

Leicester are thought to want close to £40million for the 26-year-old, however Roma value him at below £30m.
