Sky Sports: Riyad Mahrez to join Manchester City from Leicester this week for £60m

Following the imminent signing of Riyad Mahrez, just looking at Manchester City's attacking options for next season is enough to set your heart racing.

Man City are reportedly edging ever closer to landing the signing of Leicester City ace Riyad Mahrez in a deal said to be worth £60m.

The 27-year-old Algerian global - whose performances in Leicester's astonishing title win in 2016 earned him the Players' Player of the Year award - is according to Sky Sports News due to undergo a medical at Manchester City this week.

The deal is yet to be wrapped up, but it's believed the transfer fee is around £60m, which is £20m short of the asking price (£80m) in January.

The 2016 African Player of the Year has scored 48 goals and assisted another 38 strikes in 179 appearances for the Foxes, and was instrumental in their 2015/16 title-winning campaign.
