Premier League champions close to signing Riyad Mahrez and Jorginho

Premier League champions close to signing Riyad Mahrez and Jorginho”

Manchester City are set to get their summer spending underway in the coming days with a serious statement of intent.

The Premier League champions have already agreed a £60m deal with Leicester for Riyad Mahrez.

The Manchester Evening News have today reported that City and Pep Guardiola are expected to close a club-record deal for the Algerian worldwide "within days" as Mahrez's time with Leicester City at the King Power stadium looks to be over.

Guardiola has indicated that, after City's stunning league-winning season, he was only searching for two top signings.

It sparked a dispute between the 27-year-old and Leicester, with the player handing in a transfer request.

Jorginho, 26, scored against City in November in the Champions League group stage.

And Jorginho's agent Joao Santos said: "I know an offer to Napoli has arrived from Manchester City". We are waiting for a response from the Azzurri, who don't seem to have rejected the offer. "If Napoli find an agreement with the City, then we will evaluate everything", Santos told Tuttomercatoweb.

Chelsea are also interested in the player, but for the moment Manchester City are putting in all the legwork to take the midfielder to England.

Both players will be absent from this summer's World Cup after their nations failed to qualify for the tournament in Russian Federation.
