Roma have earmarked the Algerian international as a key signing
The 26-year-old winger has stated his desire to leave the Foxes this summer after handing in a transfer request at the end of last season.
Roma have earmarked the Algerian international as a key signing ahead of their campaign in the Champions League.
The Serie A club’s sporting director Monchi revealed negotiations were proving difficult and suggested they could drop their interest in the player.
But with Mahrez reaffirming his desire to leave, Roma are likely to reignite their efforts to acquire the midfielder’s signature.
