One transfer saga which looks like it may go on and on is the future of Riyad Mahrez amid mixed reports about what that may hold.
The 2015-16 PFA Players’ Player of the Year has been linked with a move away from Leicester City with a number of clubs reportedly vying for his signature.

AS Roma have reportedly already offered £30 million plus bonuses for the man who scored 17 Premier League goals in the 2015-16 season.
