With Mahrez looking likely to leave the King Power Stadium this summer, Leicester are looking to bring in reinforcements as City winger Patrick Roberts could be heading the other way in a deal which is said to be worth £10m.

Premier League champions Manchester City have sealed a £60m deal with Leicester for Algeria's Riyad Mahrez, with the Foxes ace set to undergo a medical analysis with the next two days, reports suggest.

The 27-year-old has been a long-term target for City, and moves to the Premier League champions on a five-year-deal for a fee believed to be in the region of £60m. They're redefining the English game and I wanted to be a part of it.

Riyad leaves with the best wishes of everybody who has worked with him at Leicester City Football Club.

City director of football Txiki Begiristain said Mahrez "beats defenders and creates space".

"Riyad is a hugely talented player".

"Watching them from afar has been a pleasure".

Riyad's progress with Leicester City also saw him firmly establish himself as a key member of the Algerian national team, with whom he played in the 2014 FIFA World Cup Finals and both the 2015 and 2017 Africa Cup of Nations. "Pep is committed to playing attacking football, which is a flawless for me, and City's performances last season were outstanding", he said on the club's official website.

He made 180 appearances for Leicester, scoring 48 goals.

Mahrez, along with striker Jamie Vardy and midfielder Kante, became unlikely household names in 2016 as Italian manager Claudio Ranieri engineered one of the greatest sporting surprises of all time.

The forward completed his £60million transfer earlier in the day, becoming the club's record signing weeks before they begin their Premier League title defence.

Manchester City have also been linked with Napoli midfielder Jorginho, with the Italy worldwide reportedly left out of their pre-season training camp squad.
