Leicester City has put a £90million price tag on Riyad Mahrez as Manchester City seek to sign the Algerian star before transfer deadline

It promises to be another nail-biting transfer deadline day today as league leaders Manchester City have reportedly shown serious interest in signing Leicester City forward, Riyad Mahrez.

What is more surprising is that the Foxes have placed a massive £90million price tag on the Algerian maestro if they are to sanction his exit this winter.

The Citizens are in the market for a new forward player that can play on the left-wing after their high-flying youngster, Leroy Sane suffered an injury that could keep him on the sidelines for at least seven weeks.

As usual, City’s Catalan boss, Pep Guardiola is being coy over his sides moves as the transfer window slams shut this midnight.

Pressed for information, Guardiola said: “I have interest in a lot of players. The window is open until the 31st.

“I spoke many times with club to see what is best with the players we have. We have just three strikers, with Raheem, for next month or month and a half. We have to find solutions.”

Sky Sports reports that Mahrez has since handed in a transfer request at the King Power Stadium to try to force the hands of the Leicester management. seeing that an initial £50million bid had been rejected from Man City.

If Manchester City completes the signing of Mahrez, it would comfortably push their winter spending above the £100million mark, after they splashed out £57million on Atletic Bilbao defender, Aymeric Laporte in a club-record deal.
