Leicester stars turn on Mahrez as £65m Man City move nears

Manchester City have made a bid for Riyad Mahrez

There were no suggestions as to who the player Manchester City offered is.

The Algerian ace has handed in a transfer request at the King Power Stadium as interest from Manchester City continues.

Apart from their valuations this window, Moura, 25, and Mahrez, 26, are very comparable.

The report suggests that Guardiola feels that he may need to add more firepower to his squad, as he will be without the services of injured Gabriel Jesus and Leroy Sane for the next couple of weeks.

"It's so difficult.it happened with Laporte because it's a buy-out clause, when you have to negotiate it's always so complicated".

LEICESTER have reportedly indicated their interest in Andros Townsend as a replacement for Riyad Mahrez. "We don't have more for the next month-and-a-half." added the manager. "We have a lot [of matches], but we want to find solutions".

City have ended their pursuit of the Algeria worldwide, Sky Sports News understands, after the two clubs tried for several hours to agree a deal involving cash-plus-player without success on Deadline Day.

"Am I happy? Of course, a lot", Guardiola said.

Nevertheless, the biggest obstacle to his move will be Leicester and how much they're willing to hold out for. I said many times when the player doesn't want to come it's ideal.

The Algeria worldwide is understood to have been earmarked as a potential late target for the Premier League leaders after the blow of losing Leroy Sane to injury.
