Riyad Mahrez is a transfer target for Liverpool


Liverpool have contacted Leicester City for the signing of Riyad Mahrez, according to the French Media.

It was a Friday night to recollect for the Reds, as they defeated Everton 2-1 at Anfield to achieve the FA Cup fourth round. 

Virgil van Dijk delighted in a fantasy make a big appearance for his new club, heading home a late champ before the Kop and charming himself to supporters quickly. 

Soon after the last shriek, some intriguing exchange news developed, with French distribution L'Equipe asserting Liverpool have reached Leicester, with a view to marking Mahrez this month. 

With Philippe Coutinho now showing up relatively sure to leave for Barcelona, substitutions are all together, and the Algerian would be somebody who can help fill the void.

A few fans are not totally fascinated about an exchange happening as intended, however it merits recollecting that the individual entries of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah were not met with awesome joy either. 

Losing Coutinho this month is a god-like blow, and enabling him to leave is surely a faulty choice, yet no player is greater than the club. 

Jurgen Klopp's side must push ahead without the Brazilian, and should an arrangement for Mahrez appear, they will have a superb new ability in their positions. 

The Foxes' forward's present contract doesn't lapse until 2020, yet it is trusted they will give him a chance to proceed onward this month.
