Riyad Mahrez has handed in a transfer request at Leicester
Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez has agreed to join Roma, according to reports in Italy.
The winger is ready to leave the Foxes this summer and has told the club he is hungry for a new challenge elsewhere.
Arsenal and Monaco have been linked with the Algerian, but it is Roma who are at the front of the queue.
And, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Italian club have moved a step closer to signing Mahrez after he agreed to join them.
Roma are said to have a provisional agreement in place with the 26-year-old regarding personal terms, but they now need to agree a transfer fee with Leicester.
The Serie A side have so far failed with an opening offer of £20m, which is £15m off Mahrez’s asking price.
