Chelsea have joined Paris Saint-Germain in eyeing up a move for Manchester City forward Riyad Mahrez, according to reports.

Despite the fact the club are in the headlines alot about who will be taking over the club in the summer, that has not stopped speculation in the media about the type of players that the club will try and sign.

And it is no secret that Thomas Tuchel would like to delve into that transfer kitty and add a couple of attackers to the squad that will have the ability to find the back of the net on a weekly basis, and Mahrez is that type of player

He has netted 21 goals and provided seven assists in 33 matches in all competitions and is easily one of the most creative players in that Manchester City squad, and a player that Pep Guardiola really relies on.

However, his Man City contract expires at the end of the 2022/23 campaign which makes him susceptible to offers this summer, and Foot Mercato understands there is a lack of progress in negotiating a new deal.

And City Xtra are now reporting that we have ‘studied the idea’ of signing him, But they will face stiff competition from Ligue 1 leaders PSG if they are to acquire his signature.

Look, Guardiola is the type of manager that gets what he wants, so if he tells the board to make sure that Mahrez is all signed up to stop all the speculation about his future, then that is what will happen

He would be a brilliant signing for us, but we really cant see this happening, not at his age
