Leicester boss new manager Claude Puel has sent a clear message to Arsenal and Chelsea over the future of the Foxe key player Riyad Mahrez.

The 26-year-old winger has found the net for 37 times in 149 games for the Foxes, however, was linked with an exit from the King Power Stadium after handing a transfer request earlier in the summer.

It’s believed that Arsene Wenger, Antonio Conte and even Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde have also expressed an interest in Algerian forward who has failed to secure exit from the Foxes in the summer.

Asked abut Algerian stars future, Leicester’s new boss Claude Puel said: ‘It is down to me to make these players want to stay by the fact we are playing good football.

‘I have always got to attract them, to seduce them. It is down to me to create that environment where these players want to thrive and stay and be happy and to enjoy themselves.

‘It is normal for a player, if they win the title and play Champions League, that sometimes there is a disappointment, frustration because now they know the high level.’

Puel replaced Craig Shakespeare as Leicester City head-coach earlier last week, and in his debut game at King Power stadium he leads the team to beat Everton 2-0 on Sunday.
