Roma now 2/1 to sign Leicester ace Riyad Mahrez

Serie A side in pole position for in-demand winger

Roma could be closing in on a deal to sign Leicester City’s Riyad Mahrez, according to the latest Coral odds.

Mahrez handed in a transfer request in the summer but didn’t get the move he wanted. That could change in the near future, with Roma 2/1 to sign him.

The Algeria international could also have options to stay in the Premier League. Arsenal are 7/2, with North London rivals Tottenham at 9/2.

Barcelona are also understood to be interested. The La Liga giants are third favourites at 4/1.

Mahrez has looked close to his best recently. The 2015-16 PFA Players’ Player of the Year has scored seven goals and set up seven more in the Premier League this term.

Coral’s John Hill said: “Mahrez has been in red hot form recently for Leicester and that is likely to capture the attention of a number of high profile clubs around Europe, where we believe Roma are in the driving seat to land the player from the Foxes.
