Liverpool have barely announced agreeing to sell Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona, yet the Reds are pushing ahead with plans to sign Leicester’s Riyad Mahrez , according to multiple reports in France.
The Algerian could cost £49m, almost a third of the reported £142m the Reds will receive from the Blaugrana for Coutinho. Mahrez has long since been linked with a move away from the King Power Stadium and the Foxes will be reluctant to sell midseason.
Arsenal and Chelsea are long-term admirers, but the French reports suggest Liverpool could rush through a medical on Sunday to quickly appease their disgruntled fans. However, after seeing these reports, news outlets in England quickly moved to debunk them. Saying that Liverpool have no interest in pursuing Mahrez.
