Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez has handed in a transfer request according to Sky Sources.
Manchester City are said to be interested in the Algerian after Leroy Sane suffered an ankle ligament injury that’ll take him out of action for at least six weeks.
Mahrez has been key for Leicester City this season having assisted seven goals and scoring eight. His side currently sit seventh in the Premier League and it is unknown as to whether the Foxes will sell him.
Leicester reportedly want £90m for the Algerian and with one day remaining in the transfer window, anything could happen.
Mahrez’s transfer request comes at a crucial time for the club as their may not be enough time to replace him.
Manchester City announced the signing of Atletico Bilbao defender Aymeric Laporte for £57m and that may not be the end of their spending.
