Riyad Mahrez is attracting interest from Saudi Arabia, and it’s been reported that he’s been a little frustrated with his lack of playing time this season.

He is a quality winger from Algeria. He’s not the most physically gifted player, but he has very good footwork and is known for his soft first touch from any position. He’s considered one of the best technicians in the English Premier League (EPL) and on a good day, few players can stop his left foot.

He grew up in the French second division. After breaking out at Le Havre, he headed to Leicester City ahead of the 2013-14 season. In the second half of the season, he broke into the first team with three goals and five assists in 19 league games, helping the club win promotion to the top flight.

Despite being in the big leagues for the first time in his career, Mahrez was not done. In 2014-15, he made his presence felt in the league with four goals and three assists in 30 appearances. In 2015-16, he was flying. Along with N’Golo Kante, Jamie Vardy, and Danny Drinkwater, he helped Leicester win a fairytale title. That season, Mahrez scored 17 league goals and provided 10 assists and was named PFA Player of the Year.

He continued to play for Leicester for the next two seasons. In 2017-18, he reached the 10-goal, 10-assist mark, which is the benchmark for a top striker. This performance earned him a move to Manchester City. At the time, City spent a whopping €67.8 million on his signing.

The expectations were high, and he lived up to them. He cemented his place in a City squad full of quality players. He has been criticized for his ups and downs, but there have been many occasions when a single goal from Mahrez in a frustrating game has given City the win.

He’s been a regular this season, too. In 47 appearances, including cup competitions, he scored 15 goals and provided 13 assists. While he was often used in the rotation at the start of the season, his starting role increased significantly in the second half of the league schedule.

However, there are some puzzling claims. It was claimed that Mahrez was unhappy with his playing time this season. According to Rob Dawson, who covers Manchester for global sports outlet ESPN, Mahrez is a bit frustrated with his lack of playing time this season. This doesn’t make much sense considering he’s played over 2500 minutes overall, including cup competitions.토토사이트

If Mahrez feels he’s not getting enough playing time, it’s possible he could push for a move. And there’s one place that could take advantage of this ‘gap’. Saudi Arabia. Having recently become a ‘hot spot’ for the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, and Kante, the Saudis are now targeting Mahrez.

We’re keeping an eye on the situation. European soccer transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano said: “Al Ahli are interested in signing Mahrez. This is a confirmed fact. However, City are not yet in talks. They want a consistent transfer fee. They will not let him go on a free transfer.” “Al Ahli’s chairman has traveled to London to hold talks with Mahrez about a potential move,” James Benzie of CBS Sports said on Aug. 8.
