Riyad Mahrez: Xavi likes the look of Leicester playmaker

Riyad Mahrez’s agent says he’s likely to stay at Leicester for at least the rest of the season, after casting doubts on claims he will be sold in the January transfer window.

The forward has been in sensational form this season, scoring 13 goals to help propel Leicester to the top of the Premier League table.

That has led to speculation that one of the Premier League giants could try to lure him away in January with a bumper bid, with the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United linked with a £29million move for the Algerian.

But agent Kamel Bengougam says there has been no bid, and added that Mahrez wants to stay and the club are not likely to entertain selling him.

He told Sky Sports News HQ: “I don’t think Leicester want to sell him and he is focused on doing well with them. I think he will stay in January.”

Mahrez is contracted to the King Power Stadium until the summer of 2019.
