Seria A side Roma are believed to be nearing the conclusion of a deal to sign Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez.

According to BeIN Sports’ reputable journalist, Mohamed Alkawaleny, Mahrez will undergo a medical with Roma on Thursday.

Alkawaleny said on his Twitter account that the 26-year-old is set to join Giallorossi, rather than long-time Premier League admirers Arsenal and will be confirmed as their player soon after his medical.

Another reporter, Sportitalia’s Alfredo Pedulla, also claims Roma’s latest bid of €35m and possibly bonuses “could be enough”.
