​Morgan relaxed as Roma move for Leicester star Mahrez

Arsenal and Leicester are in talks for Mahrez

Leicester City captain Wes Morgan understands why a club of Roma’s stature are interested in team-mate Riyad Mahrez.

“It’s to be expected that big clubs will be after our biggest name players,” the 33-year-old Foxes defender told Sky Sports.

“But at the end of the day he is still with us.

“He is a still a Leicester player and that’s all that matters. We can’t think about what could happen or where he might go. At the training ground we all train together and I have to say is his attitude has been great. He hasn’t shown that he is angry or that he is upset in any way or that his head is not in it. He comes in and he trains hard.

“We expect players to come and players to go. [N’Golo] Kante went and there were no hard feelings there. We’d all love Riyad to stay, but who knows what will happen.”
