Riyad Mahrez 'not slacking' despite wanting out of Leicester, says Wes Morgan

Riyad Mahrez 'not slacking' despite wanting out of Leicester, says Wes Morgan”

After rebuffing a derisory £20m offer from Roma in today's transfer market, Leicester refuse to budge in their valuation of former PFA Player of the Year Riyad Mahrez, who is seeking a move away from the King Power stadium for Champions League football.

Foxes fans will be concerned at the prospect of losing one of their best players for the second summer in succession, with Riyad Mahrez being linked with a move to some of Europe's elite clubs, including Arsenal, Roma and Tottenham, according to the Metro.

The Algeria global is on Wenger's shortlist but it's understood that the Arsenal manager is prioritising a move for Monaco's Thomas Lemar instead. "Mahrez's problem is he has talked about a move to Arsenal for two summers now but on both occasions he has had three years remaining on his contract".

Last season the Gunners would have been able to sign Mahrez for £35m.

The source added: "Arsenal didn't make a solitary bid for Mahrez last summer".

Wes Morgan hails the attacking qualities of Riyad Mahrez and insists that the winger will continue to give his all for Leicester City while he remains at the club.

'Everyone knows about Riyad Mahrez.

Leicester's £50million tag could however deter Liverpool if or when they make a bid. "He's got the key to unlock defences", said Morgan, as quoted by the Leicester Mercury. He won the Player-of-the-Year and still dreamed of joining Arsene Wenger at his dream club, but with no offer from Wenger he foolishy agreed to a new extension with Leicester and a massive increase in his wages.

'I think you can see on the pitch that he's not slacking.
