Four clubs in the race to sign Riyad Mahrez

PSG, Monaco, Tottenham and Arsenal are all battling it out to sign Algerian midfielder Riyad Mahrez, according to The Sun. Last week, the 26-year-old announced that he would be leaving Leicester City this summer after spending nearly four years at the club.

Mahrez, who helped the Foxes to the Champions League quarter-finals this season, reportedly wants to continue playing in Europe’s elite competition, which may hamper Arsenal’s chances of signing the right-sided man.

Spurs are keeping close tabs on Mahrez, as they look to bolster their squad ahead of a crucial season in the history of their club.

Monaco are also keeping an eye on the Algerian international as they are interested in replacing Bernardo Silva, who they most recently sold to Manchester City for big money. Another French club, Paris Saint-Germain, are keen on bringing Mahrez back to France.

Mahrez won the Premier League with Leicester in the 2015/16 season, a campaign where he was also named the PFA Player of the Year.
