Chelsea fans urge club to sign Riyad Mahrez after he shines against them

Reported Chelsea target Riyad Mahrez impressed as 10-man Leicester City picked up a goalless draw against the Premier League holders at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, and Blues fans have urged their club to sign the winger.

The Sun reported on January 5 that the west London outfit were ready to step up their interest in the 26-year-old with Antonio Conte keen to strengthen his squad during the January transfer window, and that could be even more of a priority following their result against the Foxes.

The Blues have now drawn four successive matches in all competitions, and Conte certainly would have been impressed with Mahrez’s performance at the Bridge, where he proved to be a real menace to his side’s defence.

Chelsea supporters were quick to have their say on the Algeria international’s display via social media, and while one said “if we had any ambition we’d go out and sign him now”, another urged the club to “sign Mahrez and fix this mess”.

Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
