Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez has committed another few years to the Premier League champions after signing a new four-year contract extension that promises to keep him at the Etihad until June 2025.

Manchester United have reportedly “explored” the possibility of signing Napoli defender Faouzi Ghoulam.
The Algeria international, who has a £22m release clause in his contract at Stadio San Paolo, has impressed with the Partenopei this term, being linked with a move to the Premier League in recent months.
Arsenal are set to go head-to-head with Tottenham Hotspur to capture the signature of Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez in January, according to The Daily Mirror.

The Algeria international was heavily linked with a move away from the King Power Stadium during the summer but a move did not happen as the Foxes were able to keep hold of the highly-rated midfielder.
