In-form star dashes Chelsea & Arsenal transfer hopes

Leicester star Riyad Mahrez is to be happy with the league leaders for the rest of this season.

Leicester’s creator-in-chief and second highest goalscorer has been reported as saying that he will not be looking for a move this January and hopes to stay with Ranieri’s side until the end of the season.

Mahrez told RMC (via Goal): “It is best for me to stay until the end of the season.”

The Leicester winger has been linked to a host of Europe’s biggest clubs, with Chelsea and Arsenal believed to be keen on the Algerian.

Even Barcelona, who are currently leading La Liga, are thought to be interested in the acquisition of the leading Premier League player in terms of goal involvement.

Mahrez performed well against Chelsea on Monday night and the ex-Le Havre man is likely to be a contender for the Player of the Season award if he maintains his current form.
