Leicester City boss Claude Puel is insisting that Riyad Mahrez will be staying at the club, despite reports that he could be set to leave the club in this transfer window.
Both Liverpool and Arsenal have been regularly linked with a move for the Algerian international, who submitted a transfer request in the summer without a move ever materialising.
There have been numerous reports over the last few weeks linked the Reds with a move for an attacking midfielder after the big-money departure of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona.
However, Puel has made clear that the Brazilian's replacement won't be Mahrez - and he believes that the 26-year-old now wants to stay at Leicester.Read More
“He's enjoying playing for Leicester with his team-mates," Puel said.
“This is the most important thing - we have this good feeling that the player wants to stay with us.
“It is important for us to keep a good feeling with our player. My boss - the owner - will decide.”
Earlier in the week, Puel slapped a £100m price tag on Mahrez, who was made captain for the Foxes' FA Cup third round replay against Fleetwood Town on Tuesday.
Jurgen Klopp has already admitted that it's unlikely Liverpool will be making any more activity in the January transfer window.Read More
The Reds boss said: "If something jumps in my face then maybe we will think about it but we aren't actively looking for a new player we don't know so far.
"We have to use the players we have. That makes absolute sense because we have high quality players."
