At the weekend Algerian Midfielder, Riyad Mahrez starred for his country in the 1-0 win against Togo in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.
The 26-year-old is hoping to help the Desert Foxes reach Cameroon, but his club future is also a prime concern after telling Leicester City he wants to leave.
Mahrez says he is ‘honoured’ by recent praise from Arsene Wenger, but insists there have been no offers yet for his services per Matthew Smith [Mail Sport].
‘It is an honour to receive compliments like this from such a big manager in world football, but there is a big difference between words, speculation and an offer’ Mahrez told Elheddaf Television.
‘There is nothing on the table at the moment. As he went on to say, there is nothing concrete, so I will not dwell on that too much yet.’
Mahrez was named 2015/16 PFA Player of the Season as Leicester astonishingly won the Premier League title, and stayed with the club last season as they reached the Champions League quarter-finals.
The player said: ‘The chairman and I agreed that I would stay another year at the club and that he would let me leave at the end of the season.
‘I think it would be the right time for me to leave, I have experienced everything at this football club.’
