    Its now a confirmed hack if anyone is wondering.
     
  2. Puel doesn't appear confident of keeping him at the club.

    It'll be interesting to see if we go back in for him.

    Hopefully when he threw his toys out of the pram in February they agreed to sell him in the summer, but then again that's reportedly exactly what they did last time as well.

    does he track back; No, do we need him; No, are the press linking us with every tom, dick or harry because they don't know our transfer targets; Yes. This is another transfer I don't think will happen, especially for 60m, no no just no City.

    Watched him quite closely against Southampton last night. His delivery from set pieces was very good and he put in some wonderful through balls; did his defensive duties diligently as well. Think he'd look even better with higher quality players around him (no offence Leicester City fans), but I hope we don't end up paying over the odds for him. I suppose it's also hard to judge a player when his heart might not be wholly in it.

    He's a quality player but where would he play if we signed him? He plays on the right wing for Leicester and cuts inside on his left foot. We already have Raheem and Bernardo who play on the right wing. I can't see him playing on the left because he's not a natural out and out winger and he can't cut inside from the left because he's left footed. Is Pep planning to play Bernardo alongside Kevin in a number 10 role ore often which makes room for Mahrez to play on the right wing replacing Raheem from time to time?

    Just don't fancy this one. Definitely in need of another wide man though so be interesting to see who we aim for.

    While Bernardo has got better and better on the right, the few occasions he has played in the middle he looked different class. I think the intention was always for him to play in the middle and eventually replace Merlin, so we really could do with another option out wide.
    Mahrez would be a great signing, I hope we go back in for him.

    He only play on the right wing for Leicester because they only have one world class player so they always use him where he's most effective. He has superb delivery, and judging by how successful Leroy has done cutting in from the left wing whilst being left footed I don't doubt for a second that Mahrez could play there if we needed him to.
