Leicester City’s bosses bemused by Roma

Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri praised his team's star player Riyad Mahrez after defeating Brugge in Champions league opening round.

Leicester City’s bosses bemused by Roma regarding attempts to land Riyad Mahrez.

Leicester City’s bosses are becoming increasingly bemused by what they see as attempts from Roma to unsettle Riyad Mahrez, in the hope they may be able to lure him to Serie A.

Leicester do not want to sell Mahrez and have rejected three bids from the Giallorossi – the latest of which was around £32m over a week ago, still way below Leicester’s valuation.

Roma have reportedly issued a deadline of midnight tonight for a deal to be done, otherwise they will focus on other transfer targets. We understand Leicester are not aware of any such deadline.
