The Premier League champions have remained keen on the Algeria global, who scored 13 goals in 41 appearances for the Foxes last season.

Sky Sports reported recently that Riyad Mahrez will travel to Manchester for a medical after Leicester accepted a bid believed to be in the region of £60 million after much speculation over his future.

Having won the Premier League title with Leicester against all odds in 2015/16 and being named PFA Players' Player of the Year, Mahrez tried to leave the club twice during the summer of 2017.

Mahrez will undergo a medical in the next few days, it is claimed, before putting pen to paper on a long-term deal at the Etihad Stadium.

Signing James Maddison, 21, from Norwich City triggered Leicester's willingness to enter into talks with City with the likely fee for Mahrez funding their summer spending.

Manchester City have also been linked with Napoli midfielder Jorginho with the Italy worldwide reportedly left out of their pre-season training camp squad.

Apart from City, Liverpool were also eyeing the services of the Leicester City forward who scored 13 goals in 41 matches last season.

And Mahrez did not take the rejection well refusing to play or train for some time and even scooped up fines fined for his boycott.

Leicester have successfully fended off interest in their star winger over four transfer windows and demanded £80m from City in January.
