Today reports are coming out via the Daily Mail, which are seemingly reporting that Spanish heavyweights and current Champions League Champions: Barcelona, are looking at the possibility of signing Leicester City’s flying winger, Algerian international ‘Riyad Mahrez’ who has emerged as a potential shock target for the Catalan giants.
The Algerian international has had a flying start to this season scoring four goals in his opening four games for Leicester City after his performances for them last season which attributed to their survival in last season’s Premier League from relegation.
Barcelona scouts have been alerted to his performances and plan to watch him again over the coming weeks.
Mahrez, who was born in France, moved to Leicester from Le Havre in January 2014 for £350,000 and has already attracted attention from rival Premier League sides including Arsenal
Riyad Mahrez certainly has been a surprise package in the Premier League this season so far, and it will be interesting to see if he can keep up the pace he has set himself already, is he Barcelona material – not yet I do not feel, but given time who knows if he can maintain the standard he has set himself so far.
