A report claims that Barcelona are considering a move for Leicester City attacker Riyad Mahrez as the Spanish champions seek a Neymar replacement.

Barcelona are reportedly considering a move for Leicester City attacker Riyad Mahrez ahead of the new La Liga season.

The Spanish giants are yet to reinvest the £200m that they received when Neymar completed a world-record move to Paris Saint-Germain earlier this month.

Borussia Dortmund's Ousmane Dembele and Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho have both been linked with moves to Camp Nou, although it is thought that both could cost in excess of £100m.

According to Sport, Barcelona, who will face Real Madrid in the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup on Sunday night, are now considering switching their attention to Mahrez after Leicester contacted the Catalan outfit.

Roma remain in the hunt for the Algerian international, but the Italian club's sporting director Monchi has recently revealed that the Serie A outfit will not be increasing their £32m offer, which has thus far been rejected by Leicester.

Mahrez scored 10 times in all competitions for Leicester last season, with four of those coming in nine Champions League matches as the Foxes reached the quarter-finals of the competition.

The 26-year-old played the full 90 minutes as Leicester lost 4-3 to Arsenal in the Premier League on Friday night.
