London trio on alert as Premier League star pushes for summer move
Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez will push for a move away from the club this summer, with Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea monitoring his situation, per The Independent.
Mahrez, 26, played a vital role in the Foxes stunning Premier League title win last season and was subject of interest in the summer, but like Jamie Vardy showed loyalty to the club.
He was voted PFA Player of the Year for his efforts, but this season has been much more mixed, with a run to the quarter finals of the Champions League tempered by flirting with relegation and the sacking of boss Claudio Ranieri.
But the Algerian is keen to make a switch away from the King Power Stadium this summer and the three biggest London clubs are chasing him.
It is reported that Mahrez struck up a gentleman’s agreement with the club’s hierarchy to allow him to leave this summer.
Joining Chelsea would see him reunited with former Leicester teammate N’Golo Kante, while also signing for the champions elect.

Spurs would allow him to play every home game at Wembley next year, but it isn’t certain what signing for Arsenal would mean with boss Arsene Wenger’s future unclear.
