Pep Guardiola is set to bid £65m for Leicester winger Riyad Mahrez this summer, as being reported by The Sun.

The Manchester City boss made two bids for the Algerian in January, but they were rejected by the club and Mahrez was forced to stay.

However, Guardiola remains keen to bolster his attacking options with Mahrezs services, even though he has two years left on his contract at the King Power Stadium.
