  • Manchester City's Leroy Sane is fouled by Cardiff City's Joe Bennett

The Riyad Mahrez to Manchester City rumors are picking up pace and the Leicester City star has now reportedly handed in a transfer request.

City have lost influential Germany winger Leroy Sane for up to seven weeks with an ankle injury and with the club competing on four fronts Guardiola suggested he may require a replacement.

"I have interest in a lot of players", Pep Guardiola said when pushed on his interest in the Algerian.

But Leicester's Thai owners, the Srivaddhanaprabha family, are maintaining a hardline stance on Mahrez and insist he is not for sale, especially at such a late stage in the transfer window. "We have a lot [of matches] but we want to find solutions".

TuttoMercatoWeb's latest story regarding the future of Riyad Mahrez fits the bill, with the Italian website stating Leicester have very recently rejected a €70m bid from Manchester City for the Algeria worldwide.

He missed training on Tuesday and was not included in Leicester's squad for Wednesday's Premier League game at Everton.

Laporte's arrival, after City agreed to pay the stipulated release fee in his Athletic contract, took Premier League spending past £245m, the previous record total for a January window. "We don't have more for the next month-and-a-half." added the manager.

According to the Mirror, Leicester have no interest in selling Mahrez, unless City can match their £75m-plus valuation of the 2016 PFA Player of the Year.

The Telegraph claim that City have yet to make an official offer offer for Mahrez, but they value him at around £60m.

The reported offer that Leicester rejected is not said to be one submitted in writing. He feels very strongly that he has done everything in his powers for the club.

City were disappointed in their efforts earlier to sign Alexis Sanchez, as Manchester United pipped them to sign the Chilean from Arsenal.
