Chelsea have emerged as potential contenders to sign Manchester City attacker Riyad Mahrez during the summer transfer window.

The Algerian has had a superb campaign for the Premier League champions, bagging 23 goals and eight assists in all competitions.

Despite his stand-out displays, he is frustrated with his game time. The attacker has averaged just over 60 minutes per appearance.

This could pave the way for his summer exit. Real Madrid, AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain are keeping tabs alongside the Blues.

Mahrez will enter the final year of his deal this summer. He could be available for a knockdown price of around £36 million.

He has yet to decide on his future, but the Blues could be boosted if he opts to stay in the Premier League with another club.

Chelsea are likely to reinforce their attack after another frustrating league campaign. There could be multiple departures.

Christian Pulisic, Romelu Lukaku and Hakim Ziyech are among attackers that could head for the exit door this summer.
