Roma, Arsenal frustrated by Leicester's £40m Mahrez demand

Leicester City are holding out for a minimum of £40m for winger Riyad Mahrez amid interest from AS Roma and Arsenal, Daily Mail reports.

The representatives from both clubs have already met to discuss the future of the player; however, Roma's initial bid of £21million plus add-ons was deemed insufficient by the Foxes.

Roma seek to sign Mahrez as a replacement for now-Liverpool player Mohamed Salah, but they are likely to be priced out of the running for the Algerian.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have also been linked with an interest in the 26-year-old.
