Riyad Mahrez odds-on to stay at Leicester as Roma and Arsenal circle


Riyad Mahrez is more likely to remain at Leicester City than move to AS Roma, according to our latest odds.

Transfer speculation has been rife in recent days regarding a possible move away for the Algerian winger.

But with the window approaching, our traders go 4/5 that the 26-year-old stays with the Foxes until the end of the season.

However, if they do opt to cash in on their prize asset, Roma are believed to be at the front of the queue.

The Italian giants are just 5/4 to snap up the ex-Le Havre man, with Arsenal and Chelsea slightly further back at 7/2 and 4/1 respectively.

Only a bid in excess of £40m would warrant any attention from Leicester.

And with Europe’s elite unwilling to pay that in the summer, it seems unlikely that anyone will cough up the cash in the January sales.

Leicester visit Newcastle United in Saturday’s evening kick-off. The Foxes are 9/5 to pick up all three points, with Mahrez 7/1 to open the scoring at St James’ Park.
