Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez is set for a medical at Liverpool imminently, according to reports.
Liverpool sold Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona for £142million and they have now set the wheels in motion to bring in his replacement.
Mahrez’s superb form for Leicester City has already been acknowledged with a nomination for the Premier League’s Player of the Month award in December, as well as seeing the Foxes settle in the top half of the table.
According to beIN Sports, Liverpool will shell out €55million (£49m) to take Leicester star Mahrez to Anfield.
The 26-year-old was a major part of Claudio Ranieri’s Foxes which shocked the world by winning the Premier League in 2016.
There has been much speculation since that title-winning campaign that Mahrez would leave the club. And he even came close to joining Arsenal last season but the deal fell through.
Now beIN Sports report that the Algerian is on the verge of a big move and will sign a four-and-a-half year deal.
Mahrez has scored eight goals in 26 appearances this season.
