Riyad Mahrez released from Algerian team HQ to ‘formalise his transfer’ to new club as Leicester departure looks iminent

RIYAD MAHREZ has been allowed to leave the headquarters of the Algerian football team to “formalise his transfer” away from Leicester City.

It seems the winger, 26, will be allowed to leave the King Power Stadium with Arsenal and Roma favourites to land him.

The 2016 Premier League winner and PFA Player of the Year will leave the club where he starred, with the creative spark to win a stunning and unlikely league title.

But he went off the boil last season, lacking the sheer explosive cutting edge of the previous term as the Foxes put in a limp defence of their Prem crown and Claudio Ranieri was sacked.

Leicester rejected a £32million bid from Roma earlier this summer, but Craig Shakespeare has understood the French-born Algerian wanted to leave the club.

He even had conversations with opwner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha over leaving, and has been told he can for the right price.

A tweet from the Algerian FA translated as: “@Mahrez22 allowed to go formalise his transfer to a new club #LesVerts #TeamDZ”
