Latest media reports in the United Kingdom reveal that Algeria and Leicester City winger, Riyad Mahrez is still eyeing a move away from the Foxes.

The Desert warriors international has been linked with a transfer from the King Power Stadium for some time and he is now linked with Tottenham Hotspur.

A report carried by the Daily Star suggests that the Lily Whites are set to benefit from bringing the Algerian in.

Mahrez has been in good form at Leicester this term, with the winger contributing five assists and scoring two goals in 11 English Premier League appearances.

Morever, the arrival of new coach Claude Puel seems to have fuelled something in as far as Mahrez’s performance is concerned.

The England-based website adds that manager Mauricio Pochettino is convinced that the 26-year-old could add value in his attacking options.

City, though, will be reluctant to lose one of their most-prized assets, but the emergence of Demarai Gray means that the blow may now not be quite as hard to take as it once would have been.

Although Spurs reportedly wanted to sign Mahrez in the English summer, they were unable to get a deal and could be tempted to test the water in January.
