Former Premier League champions Leicester City have rejected an undisclosed bid from their Italian counterparts Roma for the signature of the current CAF African Footballer of the Year Riyad Mahrez.
The Foxes manager Craig Shakespeare has revealed that the club rejected the bid from The Giallorossi because it did not meet the winger’s valuation.
“I think I was quoted on the last press day that there were no bids,” Shakespeare said.
“There was a bid from Roma, I was told afterwards, so I would like to put the record straight on that one.
“It was politely declined on the basis that it was a low offer. Of what that offer is, don’t ask me how much because I don’t know and I don’t get involved in that.”
Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are also interested in snapping up Riyad Mahrez in the summer transfer window.
