Riyad Mahrez is close to joining Manchester City

Mahrez will undergo a medical in the next few days, it is claimed, before putting pen to paper on a long-term deal at the Etihad Stadium.

Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez is set to have medical with Manchester City this week.

Algeria internationals Riyad Mahrez, Islam Slimani and Ghana's Daniel Amartey missed Leicester City's pre-season training on Monday.

Riyad Mahrez looks on during the friendly match of preparation for Federation Internationale de Football Association 2018 World Cup between Portugal and Algeria at the Estadio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica on June 7, 2018. The basic price of the Algeria global is expected to start at £60m and with add-ons may raise to £75m. Even Mahrez himself requested an official transfer request twice.

The Algerian global returned to top form last season, scoring 13 goals and providing 13 assists in 41 appearances.

Warframe Announced for Nintendo Switch
And the relative lack of discoverability or recommendation tools on the Switch's online storefront may not help matters, either. This company has a good track record with creating good Switch games that haven't lost their visual luster.

Claude Puel will still be on the search for a wide player to replace Mahrez and Patrick Roberts has been discussed as a £15m addition to the deal.

However, they never gave up hope of signing the Algerian and now look set to snap him up for a much more reasonable price.

Leicester have successfully fended off interest in their star winger over four transfer windows and demanded £80m from City in January.

The Citizens are thought to be paying £60 m for the 27-year-old.
