Leicester’s Riyad Mahrez is still a main target for AS Roma.

Italian club director of football and main market strategist, Monchi, is again trying to deepen transfer talks with Foxes.

The Leicester City star has been pushing for an exit for some time now, despite playing a belter of a season. He got into big trouble with the Foxes this January, when the Midlands club refused him a move to Manchester City. 

He has scored nine goals and added seven assists in only 25 games, but recent reports indicated that he wanted to hang up his boots
Yet, instead of ending his career, he is looking for a move to Roma, with the Italian reports claiming that the 27-year-old has already reached personal terms with the Giallorossi. 

​They had courted him pretty intensely last summer, hoping to revamp him the way they did with Gervinho many years ago.
He is set to cost quite a bit, at least 56m according to the Italian papers, as he has a deal with the Foxes which will only end in 2020.
