Roma agreed fee with Leicester City for winger Riyad Mahrez

According to Corriere dello Sport, Roma have made a breakthrough for the Algerian playmaker, having previously seen two bids rejected for his signature.

New boss Eusebio di Francesco has money to spend after the Italian giants generated over £80m through the sales of Antonio Rudiger, Leandro Paredes and Mohamed Salah , and it appears that Luciano Spalletti ‘s replacement is willing to spend in excess of £32m to sign Mahrez.

During his time in the East Midlands, Mahrez has helped Leicester win the Premier League title, an achievement which led to a run to the Champions League quarter-finals during the last campaign.

Mahrez – who has played a full role in pre-season – has contributed 35 goals in 138 appearances for Leicester in all competitions.
