Leicester see Crystal Palace winger Townsend as Mahrez replacement

Leicester City are eyeing Crystal Palace winger Andros Townsend.

The Foxes see Townsend as a replacement for wantaway attacker Riyad Mahrez.

The Daily Mail says Manchester City will attempt to push through a deal for Mahrez on Wednesday - and Townsend is among the names being considered by Leicester if the Algerian winger leaves.

It remains to be seen whether Palace would even entertain an approach for Townsend, however.

The winger has played a key role in Palace's revival under Roy Hodgson but has only scored one goal and added six assists this season.
