African star reportedly in talks with Liverpool over January move

African star reportedly in talks with Liverpool over January move

According to The Express he would much prefer to link-up with Arsenal, who he almost joined in the summer.

The Reds have money to spend following the €160 million sale of a key creative influence to Barcelona.

Liverpool have reportedly begun negotiations with Leicester City over a potential move for Riyad Mahrez, though the Algerian is said to favour a switch to Arsenal during the winter transfer window.

And the advisor insisted the France-born player will not seek to force a move away from the King Power Stadium - even though he harbours hopes of joining a "big club".

Internationally, he has been capped thirty-four times for his country, scoring eight times and he appeared at the 2014 World Cup finals.

Según las informaciones preliminares, el hecho ocurrió pasadas las 6, cuando se registró una fuerte tormenta eléctrica. El intendente indicó que en el camping no hay pararrayos, pero que sí hay a 100 metros.

Martin Keown thinks that Riyad Mahrez's performance in Leicester City's 0-0 draw at Chelsea will have only encouraged clubs to make a move for him in the transfer window this month. And that is all he does.

"But if you want the truth, we don't know anything about this". The negotiations will surely take a lot of time.

Arsenal are likely to move in for a potential successor for contract rebel Alexis Sanchez before the end of the month, but the Foxes' £50m valuation could put them off from making an offer.

"It is actually scary as look at the actual amount of goals he scores, but also look at the amount of goals he missed - one versus one, not easy goals at the end of the day, because they are not easy".

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.
