Riyad Mahrez has admitted he could leave Leicester if “two or three” of the world’s leading clubs come calling.
Riyad Mahrez has been linked with a move to Arsenal, but according to Sky Sports the Gunners have not made a £30m offer for him.
Reports in the national press have also linked Real Madrid and Barcelona with moves for Mahrez and the Algeria international concedes he could be tempted by a move away from the King Power Stadium.
“It (the Premier League) is a super league and I would like to stay here as long as possible. But now there are two or three clubs in the world that if they come for me it definitely makes you think, if you understand what I am trying to say.”
Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri insisted last week there had been no approaches for Mahrez and expected his star man to remain with the club.
Mahrez admitted Leicester face a near impossible task of retaining their league crown.
“We know that Leicester will not win the league again. We are not Manchester United or Chelsea,” he said.
“But success would look like becoming part of the cohort of solid clubs in the Premier League, consistently.
“You are always having to prove yourself. Now, people are expecting things from us. And we’ll have to respond because nobody will do us any favours.”
