​EXCLUSIVE: Leicester to accept €38m Roma bid for Mahrez

Bookmakers have put Roma at the top of the race for grabbing Riyad Mahrez and giving to Eusebio Di Francesco the top player he has asked for.

Yesterday's newspapers were exaggerating writing that Leicester would have asked €50m for the player of the year 2016-17 in Premier League.

Roma and Leicester, in reality, are very close to reach an agreement on the basis of €33m plus €5m of eventual bonus.

This is the offer that Monchi has planned together with Pallotta and that he will submit very soon. And one that Leicester will likely accept.

Mahrez is very close to become a Roma player, the one who can help the club to make a jump of quality towards the pursuit of Juventus.
