Enrique’s side currently boast probably the best attacking trio in the world in Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar, but lack alternatives in their squad.
According to Don Balon, they could now table a big-money bid of up to £40million for Mahrez after his stunning form in the Premier League.
The Algerian has the best goals+ assists this season in the league and has been tipped to win the PFA player of the year.
Most goals + assists 2015/16
Riyad Mahrez- 27
Jamie Vardy- 25
Romelu Lukaku- 24
Reports yesterday claimed Leicester expect to lose either Mahrez or N’Golo Kante this summer, with Manchester United mentioned as strong contenders for the 25-year-old attacker.
Mahrez is a strong contender for Player of the Year after scoring 16 goals and setting up 11 more for Leicester this season, firing them to within four wins of the Premier League title.
