Manchester City's Plethora Of Attacking Options Is Now Ridiculous

Manchester City's Plethora Of Attacking Options Is Now Ridiculous

Leicester City attacker Riyad Mahrez is slated to have a Manchester City medical this week.

The winger has been a long-term City target and the Premier League champions are finally closing in, Press Association Sport understands.

The price is way below the £80m price tag The Foxes had pinned on their star man in January, putting off City's interest.

Claude Puel will still be on the search for a wide player to replace Mahrez and Patrick Roberts has been discussed as a £15m addition to the deal. If Leicester does sell Mahrez for the reported 65 million, they will make a huge profit on his 500.000 transfer from Le Havre back in 2014.

Her performances had thousands of followers on various accounts with her name on them, ranging from 12,000 to 66,000 followers. An Iranian teenager has been arrested for posting videos of herself dancing without a hijab on social media .

Having won the Premier League title with Leicester against all odds in 2015/16 and being named PFA Players' Player of the Year, Mahrez tried to leave the club twice during the summer of 2017.

Regardless of being at odds with the Foxes, Mahrez managed to score 13 goals in 41 appearances last season and Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola feels that he is the missing cog in his team.

The Citizens are said to have had a £60m offer accepted for the Algerian winger, who they were keen to bring in during the January transfer window.

The 27-year-old is expected to undergo a medical in the coming days, with all major aspects of the deal agreed between the two clubs.
