Paris Saint-Germain set sights on Manchester City forward Riyad Mahrez

    Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly interested in Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez, reports in Italy and England suggest

    City were handed a two-year Champions League ban, and if it were to be upheld, the reigning Premier League holders could face the prospect of losing some of their best players, including Mahrez.

    Although he found his first-team opportunities limited upon his at-the-time club-record signing, the Algeria international has established himself as an indispensable first-team player following Leroy Sane’s long-term spell on the sidelines.

    Indeed, the 29-year-old has registered nine goals and 14 assists in 37 appearances under Pep Guardiola this season, nailing the right-wing position down as his own.

    But, the Citizens risk losing Mahrez to Paris Saint-Germain, who seem to be looking to lure the former Leicester City man to Ligue 1 this summer, according to the Daily Mail.

    Afraid of the possibility of losing Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid at the end of the season, the perennial French champions have started scouring Europe for his potential replacement.

    Although Mbappe’s contract at the Parc des Princes runs out in 2022, the 21-year-old has yet to open negotiations with PSG to extend his deal, which is enough for the club to start searching for his heir.
