NOT PICKED YOUR FANTASY FOOTBALL TEAM YET? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?


And, according to Sport, Mahrez is the latest man on Barcelona’s radar.

Barca are already chasing after Borussia Dortmund forward Ousmane Dembélé and Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho.

Mahrez won the Premier League with Leicester two seasons ago along with being voted 2016 PFA player of the season.

Arsene Wenger also confirmed his interest in Mahrez as he confirmed he ‘rated’ him as a player but had similar types with Alex Iwobi, Jack Wilshere and Mesut Ozil.
