La Liga giants step up chase for Leicester star

mahrez8Leicester City fans enjoyed another fantastic weekend as they extended their lead at the top of the Premier League table but they are concerned about the future of one of their star men.

The Sun is reporting that La Liga giants Barcelona are set to step up their interest in Leicester forward Riyad Mahrez.

The Algerian has been in fine form for the Premier League leaders so far this season and netted his 15th goal of the season in Saturday’s victory over Watford.

Barcelona boss Luis Enrique has told his bosses at the Nou Camp that he wants Mahrez at the club next season and they are set to test Leicester’s resolve by making a £15 million bid for the player as soon as the window opens in the summer.

Garcia has had the player watched on numerous occasions and is impressed with Mahrez’s creativity and scoring instincts.

The Leicester fans in The Tavern are not at all surprised that Europe’s bigger clubs are sniffing around and are hopeful that the club can hang on to their quality players.

Leicester fans, can you keep Mahrez this summer? Let us know in the comments below!
