Borussia Dortmund and Premier League clubs such as Chelsea, Spurs and Manchester City are set to battle it out for the signature of Leicester City’s star Riyad Mahrez, according to Le Buteur.
It comes as no surprise that the Algerian international is wanted by European’s elite. Mahrez, 24, has played a pivotal role in Leicester City’s astonishing rise to the top of the Premier League. He has been a standout performer for the Foxes, scoring 14 goals in 25 games in only his second season in the English division.
The 24-year-old was on the score sheet last weekend as Leicester oversaw fellow title challengers Manchester City 1-3, which sent Claudio Ranieri’s side five points clear at the top of the table before Arsenal and Tottenham played.
Leicester face a very tough task of keeping the Algerian at the King Power Stadium as Arsenal and Manchester United, to name a few, look to snatch the young star who has taken the Premier League by storm.
Despite Borussia Dortmund’s success, Mahrez outplays their attacking midfield this season. Comparing Riyad Mahrez with Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Shinji Kagawa, the Algerian beats the Dortmund duo on assists, goal scored and goal accruacy, showing that the addition of Mahrez could be beneficial to that attacking midfield.
