Leicester: Mahrez tipped for Spurs switch

Spurs narrowly missed out on the Premier League title last season and despite a strong late push for the title this season, they have to settle for being the runners-up only which means that Pochettino will be desperate to find that extra bit of firepower next season and Mahrez could definitely prove to be that special charm.

Mahrez wants out of the club.

The Merseyside outfit were lethargic throughout and didn't muster too many clear cut chances, and will hope for better in their final two games of the campaign as they look to finish strongly ahead of a pivotal summer at Goodison Park.

However, for a player of Mahrez's calibre who has plenty of years left at his peak, the value does not seem that high.

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly one of the clubs interested in signing Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is also reportedly interested in the 30-year old, and with Champions League football on the horizon, the Argentine sees Mahrez as the ideal option to bolster the his attacking options.

Mahrez has 10 goals and seven assists in his 44 appearances in all competitions for Leicester this term.

Ultimately, the 26-year-old has proven to be a man for the big occasion, and grab key goals and produce key performances at key times for Leicester.

For us, it's a great achievement to fight for the title and the FA Cup, because we are in the final. It's a lack of respect for my players and for the other club.

Tottenham have been linked with Mahrez in the past, but the tricky attacker opted to stay at Leicester this season.

Despite being rewarded with a new £100,000 a week deal in the summer, Mahrez has failed to replicate last season's form and is believed to be wanting a new challenge. Spurs can offer Champions League, an exciting brand of football, and a top manager whom players like to play for.

Arsenal, in particular, could be in dire need to sign at least one attacking player when the transfer window opens in June.
