Mahrez is reportedly valued at £50m by the 2015-16 Premier League champions, however, which has supposedly put Arsenal - the only side seriously linked with the Algeria worldwide - off making an opening offer.

Mahrez's dazzling form in 2015/16 won him the PFA Player of the Year prize and helped Leicester win the Premier League, and he remained loyal to the club despite a disappointing campaign the following year.

Riyad Mahrez is reportedly furious with Leicester City as Arsenal look to have been put off his £50million asking price by moving instead for Monaco winger Thomas Lemar. The players understand the reasons why he came out with what he did.

Arsenal are said to have held talks with the 26-year-old over a possible move to the Emirates Stadium, but the Mail's report states that the Gunners are unwilling to pay more than £35m.

"We have to be professional with him but more importantly he has to be committed and I think he has to show supporters, staff and players that". Beyond that Shakespeare said he is "open-minded" about selecting Mahrez.

The Algeria global joined the Foxes from Le Havre in January 2014 and helped them secure promotion to the Premier League in the 2014/15 season.

He wrote: "While I greatly appreciate the efforts of President Xi & China to help with North Korea, it has not worked out". It is proposing severing the bank from the USA financial system, pending a 60-day review period.

"With making a statement like that of course it's how you're accepted by the other players".

He said: "If he's selected he has to perform and if he doesn't show commitment he won't play".

"Knowing what Riyad's capable of and the tight links he's got within our group, they will be fine with him". If players want to go, and we get a bid, we'll reflect on it.

"Ultimately he's got a contract with us and he has to understand that - he has to be professional".

"The relationship I share with the club and our wonderful fans are something I will treasure forever and I truly hope they will understand and respect my decision".
