With the January transfer window edging closer, football clubs will be assessing their options in the market.
BBC pundit Danny Murphy believes that Tottenham Hotspur should make a move for Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez.
The Algerian caused problems for the North London outfit in Tuesday’s Premier League clash at the King Power Stadium.
Mahrez was instrumental in Leicester’s shock title win in 2015-16, but he has struggled to recreate that form.
This season, the attack-minded player has scored four goals and registered as many assists in 15 appearances in all competitions.
On Tuesday, the 26-year-old thrived on the flank and managed to get on the scoresheet by cutting inside and sending the ball past goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.
In the end, Tottenham were beaten 2-1, which means that their winless run in the league has now stretched to three games.
Murphy believes that Mahrez’s style of play would fit into Mauricio Pochettino’s team.
During BBC One’s Match of the Day, the former Liverpool midfielder said:
“He’d suit Tottenham. They need someone like him. They need someone who can add a bit of dynamism to their team.”
