Manchester City are close to completing the signing of Leicester City attacker Riyad Mahrez for £65m, The Sun reports.

The deal is reported to be close to completion and could be finished before the end of the week.

The Premier League winner who was linked with a move to the league champions in January has made it clear he doesn't want to stay at the King Power Stadium after declining to sign a new contract.

With the signing of James Maddison from Norwich City earlier in the week, it is getting clearer that the Algerian international's days with the Foxes are numbered.

If the move is completed, it will be interesting to see where the attacker plays as City already have a wealth of attacking options.

If one has learnt anything from the title winning side, one should know that they are a fighting side, and come what may, it is expected that Mahrez will fight for his place in any team in this world.
