Algeria international Riyad Mahrez has been linked with a surprise switch to Chelsea this summer after he was spotted calling the Blues 'an incredible club'.

Antonio Conte's men cruised to the Premier League title last Friday as they managed to clinch all three points at West Bromwich Albion through a late Michy Batshuayi goal.

Prior to Leicester City's 2-1 loss at Manchester City, Mahrez had a chat with fellow compatriot Islam Slimani where he was talking up Chelsea, by saying: "They're an incredible club. A real club."

Mahrez had been linked with a potential move to Stamford Bridge last summer, but unfortunately, a deal never materialised with the attacker opting to stay put at the Foxes.

He has since struggled to reach the heights he managed last season and is now said to be mulling over a potential move to a bigger club capable of offering European football at the least.

Mahrez has managed just three six goals and three assists this term, which is a far cry of last season's tally of 17 goals and 11 assists which led the Foxes to a maiden league title.
