This is concerning the Leicester City fans in the Football Transfer Tavern…
Riyad Mahrez has proven himself as one of the Premier League’s most impressive attacking midfielders; and it would appear that his contributions have not gone unnoticed.
According to Calcio Mercato, the Foxes have received an enquiry from Italian giants AC Milan – with the Serie A side looking to rebuild following a sustained period of disappointing form.
They are reporting that AC Milan Sporting Director Massimiliano Mirabelli recently made a trip to England and watched Leicester in action – with his eyes firmly focused on Mahrez.
Leicester were able to hold on to their star player during the summer, but January and next summer pose a very different and very real threat for Claudio Ranieri’s side.
Poor form this season looks likely to see Leicester City have a mid-table finish; and the lack of European football may prevent big names from joining, or indeed staying at, the club.
The Leicester City fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are hoping that Ranieri will be able to hold on to his star player; but they aren’t holding out much hope.
Mahrez has been in decent form this year, having picked up 1 goal and 1 assist in the Premier League thus far.
His Champions League form has been even more impressive – having picked up 3 goals and 1 assist in just 4 appearances.
