Leicester City boss Claude Puel will consider permanent Aleksandar Dragovic move

Vardy and Mahrez fire Foxes to victory over struggling Watford

The Algerian has been in red-hot form since Claude Puel's arrival at Leicester City, having had a direct hand in ten goals (six goals and four assists).

He said: "For Mahrez, there is nothing new to say about Riyad".

The 2015-16 Premier League champions have been linked with several players this month.

Premier League pair Arsenal and Liverpool have both been linked with Mahrez, but according to Italian outlet Calciomercato.it, the winger could again see Roma chasing him this month. "I think we work normally in this transfer window and it's important to keep our focus about our transfer window".

"For Slimani, I can not give all the ties about an individual player, I repeat, that since the beginning, that we have a lot of strikers".


"For Slimani, I can not give all the details about an individual player. It will be important this window to find a good balance".

"It would have been nice to score more goals because we had a lot of chances, but in the end it's a good victory against a good team", Puel added. "That makes absolute sense because we have high quality players".

Mahrez asked to leave Leicester in the summer but only Roma made firm offers, their final bid rising to £32 million. It's always the same thing, always the same response.

"We can see his performance in games; he's a very good player and he likes his club and team-mates".

'At this moment nothing is close to happening.
