There are rumours surrounding the player that he is interested in a move away from the club but Clade Puel thinks otherwise.
According to the Leicester City manager, Mahrez is happy at the club and is not looking to move. Earlier in the summer, the winger had handed in a transfer request only to be denied by the club.
Speaking to the media earlier today, Puel said, “I want to keep all my best players and Riyad is an important player in the team for us. When I discussed things with him, he had a good attitude and is enjoying his football.”
“He is a happy player and likes to play with his team-mates. His statistics have improved, with assists and scoring. Of course, I want him to continue all this good work.”
“He is happy with the squad, it is speculation but for me it is no problem. He is happy to play with this team, he enjoys his football and this is the most important thing.”
