Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez - an alleged target of Manchester City - reportedly hands in a fresh transfer request at the King Power Stadium.

Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez has reportedly handed in a new transfer request at the King Power Stadium.

At the end of last season, Mahrez told the Foxes that he wanted to take on a new challenge away from the club, but the Algerian international has remained in the East Midlands.

Mahrez has contributed eight goals and seven assists in 24 Premier League fixtures this season, and manager Claude Puel has reiterated that the playmaker would remain at the club until at least the end of the campaign.

However, according to Sky Sports News, Mahrez has asked to leave Leicester before the end of the month, just hours after reports emerged over potential interest from Manchester City.

Leicester are said to have indicated that it will take an offer of at least £60m for the club to be tempted into selling their star man at this stage of the season.

Mahrez still has two-and-a-half years remaining on his contract.
