Riyad Mahrez is having a medical at Manchester City ahead of a £60 million move from Leicester City.

The Algerian, who helped the Foxes to an unlikely Premier League triumph in 2016, seemed destined for a move away from the King Power Stadium in January.

Riyad Mahrez is set to swap Leicester City for Manchester City

A deal has been mooted for some time however, it now seems as though it could be announced as soon as Tuesday afternoon.

The mercurial forward was pictured leaving the Wilmslow clinic in Manchester, after being left out of Leicester's pre-season squad to France.

According to the Manchester Evening News, the club are keen to announce the deal before England play Croatia in their World Cup semi-final on Wednesday.

Pep Guardiola wanted to sign the 27-year-old in January, but Leicester refused to sell their star man so late in the transfer window.
