Chelsea prepare £20m bid for Leicester City star

Chelsea are reportedly lining up a £20million bid for Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez.

The Star on Sunday reports that the Blues have been tracking the Algerian winger’s progress this season and are now ready to make a bid.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is a huge fan of Mahrez and it is expected that the 24-year-old will feature on the Blues’ shopping list in the summer.

The Algeria midfielder has scored 15 goals for Leicester City this season.

Mahrez has been a hit for Leicester City since joining the club from French minnows Le Havre for under £1million, just two years ago.
