The PFA Player of the Year has been linked with a move to Arsenal after the Gunners failed to convince Jamie Vardy, and his manager believes he will make the same choice
Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri insists winger Riyad Mahrez will not be leaving the Premier League champions before the start of the season.
Algeria international Mahrez has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal, which also failed in a bid to land teammate Jamie Vardy, but Ranieri says he has been given assurances he does not have to sell any more players following N’Golo Kante’s 32 million pounds ($41.8M) switch to Chelsea.
He told reporters ahead of Sunday’s Community Shield clash with Manchester United at Wembley: “I am used to speaking about these things.
“But it is important that my players believe in the new moment. It is normal others want Riyad and other players, but we must focus on the job.
