The Premier League champions are ready to make the Algeria international the club's most expensive player, eclipsing the £57 million paid to get the services of Aymeric Laporte during the winter transfer window.

The Citizens are expected to pay considerable add-ons for 2015-16 PFA Player of the Year that will take the fee to an excess of £75million.

Leicester City finished the 2017-18 season placed ninth in the English top-flight, with Mahrez notching 12 goals in 36 outings.
