Mahrez has 'nothing on the table' amid Arsenal and Barcelona transfer talk

Riyad Mahrez GETTYRiyad Mahrez wants Barcelona move

The Algeria worldwide intends to leave the King Power Stadium this summer after declaring that he has achieved all that he possibly can at the club.

Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez announced his desire to leave the club last month, and reports claim he's waiting for a move to Barcelona.

The 26-year-old winger has endured a hard campaign after a spectacular 2015/16 season in which he was crowned PFA Players' Player of the Year.

Chelsea are understood to have shown an interest in the 26-year-old, but Arsenal and Barcelona are widely considered to be the two sides most interested in his signature.

The Algeria winger confirmed in May that he had asked to leave the Foxes, just over a year after helping them win the Premier League title.

Mahrez is now in Algeria on global duty; the Desert Foxes take on Togo on Sunday evening in their first qualifying match for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

Across the U.S. , marches and rallies in support of LGBT rights
Roughly 100 marches and rallies were planned across the USA , from Portland, Maine, and Boston to Anchorage, Alaska, and Honolulu. The march comes on the eve of the first anniversary of the shooting in a gay Florida nightclub, Pulse, which killed 49 people.

He said: "There's a big difference between an offer and speculation".

Mahrez is quoted as saying by Metro: "It's an honour to receive compliments like this from such a big manager [Wenger] in world football".

Mahrez endured a pretty poor season in 2016/17, a massive disappointment considering his unbelievable campaign in 2015/16, in which he won the highly coveted PFA Player of the Year award.

'I think it would be the right time for me to leave, I have experienced everything at this football club'.

The Frenchman said: "We have not made a bid for him but personally I like the player, yes. I sincerely do not know where I will play next season".
