Leicester City transfer news: Foxes talisman sets his eyes on stunning £35M summer move to European heavyweight

Posted by

Riyad Mahrez has made it his objective to seal a stunning summer move to La Liga giants Barcelona, report The Sun.

Mahrez was instrumental for Leicester last campaign as the Foxes defied the odds to lift the Premier League title. The Algerian found the back of the net 17 times in England’s top tier, and also provided 11 assists for his teammates. Throughout his stellar campaign, Mahrez was directly involved in a goal every 108 minutes. It earned him plenty of personal accolades at the end-of-season awards.

His good performances in a Leicester shirt appears to have captured the attention of one Spanish heavyweight. The Sun cite Sport in reporting that Mahrez has held talks with Barcelona, and has made it his goal to move to the Nou Camp in the summer.

Sport believe that Leicester will demand as much as £35million in exchange for Mahrez’s services. It remains to be seen whether that’s a price Barca are willing to pay.
