Foxes unsure over Mahrez future

Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare does not know if they will still have Riyad Mahrez at the club at the end of the transfer window.

Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare was good on his word and started Riyad Mahrez, despite the fact the Algeria international has asked to leave the club.

Mahrez, who has been linked with a move to Arsenal in the past 12 months, had also been a target for Roma.

The Serie A side have now said they will not return with an improvement on the offer that was rejected and, while he remains a Leicester player, Shakespeare is more than happy to utilise the 2016 PFA Player of the Year.

Asked whether Mahrez would be at the club when the window closes, the Foxes boss said: "Who knows?

"I think we have all seen the funny business of the transfer window and we never know what is round the corner. Riyad has been very focused.

"He came out and made a statement which we are all aware of but while he trains and plays and is professional the way he is, he will be considered for selection."
