Man City set to seal £60m Mahrez deal

Manchester City are set to complete a £60m move for Leicester playmaker Riyad Mahrez, according to reports.

The Premier League champions are finally set to sign  player who has been a long-term target, with Sky Sports News reporting that all details of the deal are agreed and that Mahrez will undergo a medical in the coming days.

City made a concerted effort to sign Mahrez in January, with several bids turned down and the player handing in a transfer request, but have now struck a deal at a price some way below the £80m demanded at the start of the year.

Mahrez, a Premier League champion in the remarkable 2015/16 campaign, scored 13 goals in 41 appearances last season but has not yet returned for pre-season due to international duty with Algeria last month.
