Leicester's Riyad Mahrez hoping Roma will return to launch third bid for Algerian wing wizard

The Giallorossi have had two bids rejected already but Mahrez is keen to move to Italy and play Champions League football

Riyad Mahrez is hoping Roma return with a third bid for him as he increasingly fancies a switch to Serie A.

The Algerian ace wants out from Leicester after telling the 2015-2016 Premier League champions at the end of last season that he wanted to quit.

A public statement was issued in his name demanding to go and he wants to play in the Champions League again after tasting it last term.

Italian side Roma, who finished runners-up last season, are in pole position for his signature and can offer him action against Europe’s elite.

But they are struggling to agree a fee after bids of £20million and £32m for the former PFA player of the year were turned down by Leicester.

Leicester are demanding £50m for the attacking ace, which they feel is in line with his status and reflective of this summer’s inflated market.

The Foxes and Roma are way apart in negotiations but the Italian’s sporting director Monchi still wants Mahrez to replace Mohamed Salah following his sale to Liverpool.
