Leicester City are set to reject a third bid from AS Roma for winger Riyad Mahrez.
The Serie A side have already had offers of £20m and £27m knocked back, while an increased bid of £31.8m still falls short of Leicester’s £50m valuation.
Mahrez has scored 35 goals in over 100 appearances for City since moving from French Ligue 2 side Le Havre in 2014.
Arsene Wenger has previously spoken of his admiration for the 26-year-old, but he has also stated that Arsenal have no space to fit Mahrez in his side.
Mauricio Pochettino is another known admirer of the winger, but the Spurs’ boss has been put off by Leicester’s asking price.
Leicester are also battling to keep hold of Danny Drinkwater, with Chelsea expected to step up their chase of the midfielder this week.
According to the Express, Blues’ boss Antonio Conte will submit a bid of £25 million in the next 24 hours as he looks to strengthen his squad.
The Foxes have already rejected a £15m bid from Chelsea, but Saturday’s 3-2 defeat at home to Burnley has highlighted the need for Conte to strengthen his squad.
