African star reportedly in talks with Liverpool over January move

African star reportedly in talks with Liverpool over January move

Mahrez is one of the few players who are eligible to feature in this season's Champions league, and this would favour the Reds greatly as they embark in the knockout phase, which starts in February. Here he was back to his menacing best, cutting inside off the right wing, buzzing all over the pitch and tormenting Antonio Rudiger with his direct dribbling.

But the Algerian is holding out for a move to Arsenal this month.

"There is no problem".

The Reds have been strongly linked with the Leicester attacker following the departure of their Brazilian talisman.

Mahrez's current deal with the Foxes will expire in 2020.

The Frenchman said: "He is a happy player".

Salah will be hoping to add to his tally when Liverpool host Manchester City on Sunday (4pm).

GETTY Manuel Lanzini could be the creative spark Liverpool turn to to replace Philippe Coutinho

But his stay on Merseyside could be short-lived, with Madrid keen to bring in a big name to counter Barcelona's signing of Philippe Coutinho.

Alejandro Gomez would be willing to leave Atalanta to join Liverpool during the January transfer window, claims Tuttosport.

Serie A giants Roma chased Mahrez in the transfer window last summer, but the Giallorossi were unable to agree a fee with Leicester for his services.

Having sold Phillipe Coutinho for a British record £142 million to FC Barcelona, Liverpool are willing to pay the £50 million asking price for Riyad Mahrez; however, the Algerian still favours Arsenal, meaning that anything is still possible.

Liverpool and Arsenal will need to spend at least £90 million to land Thomas Lemar from Monaco, according to The Mirror.

Mahrez scored 19 goals and made 16 assists to help Leicester to beat Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur to the Premier League title.

"So that type of player at the moment would get into the team".
