Mahrez unlikely to be a target


Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez is unlikely to be on the Summer shopping list for Liverpool.

That’s according to an article by the Liverpool Echo, in which they assess various players who have missed out on Champions League football for next season with their current clubs.

Many Liverpool supporters were hopeful that the Algerian international would be a transfer target after the sale of Brazil international Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona in January.

But the Foxes had absolutely no intention of letting one of their prized assets make a move midway through the season and it remains to be seen whether manager Jurgen Klopp will reassess this Summer.

Manchester City did try and make a move to sign him on deadline day at the end of the winter transfer window, but Leicester point blank refused to even enter negotiations over a deal.

City boss Pep Guardiola looks likely to return with another bid this Summer as he looks to add even more pace and flair to his already impressive squad.

Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha is another player who has been linked with moves to both Anfield and The Etihad, but he appears less keen on making an exit from his current club.
