I think Conte can help him perform like he did in the previous season. I also hope that we sign a better player but I won't be sorry if we get him for a reasonable price.

for the right price id take him. but if they want 35m plus and he is expecting to start every week we don't need that headache.

If we can steal him for a reasonable fee and have him buy into being a good player on a successful team im interested.

Think he'd be a great signing for any of the top teams. If not here, I hope it's not Liverpool or Spuds. Can see him being an annoyingly great signing for either of them.

If Mahrez can recreate the form he had when Leicester City won the the league he could make a good signing 

I don't know why people are so keen on Mahrez. We need players who we know or can expect to do a proper job for us, not those who have question marks on.

And here's a thought that I don't think has been mentioned much - was Mahrez able to perform well last season because of Leicester's counter attacking style? Had tons of spaces to score and create chances. Leicester tried to change their approach this season and it didn't work out well for them or Mahrez.

I could see him being a Liverpool signing and returning to the heights he saw previously. He'd be a Mané or Lallana type signing where he isn't coveted by the biggest sides and won't go for mega money but turns out to be very effective.

If he turns out to be good for Liverpool, then that would probably be because they play a style that plays to his strengths.

He may sign for Liverpool but he's not going to turn them into a top quality side and really make your fear them, is he?

Not really, no. If he ends up at Spurs it would make them scarier, though. He, Eriksen, and Kane in attack could be extremely tricky to play against.

In some ways right now, we do fear Spurs already. I don't think the signing of Mahrez is going to add anymore to that. Different case say if they sign someone like James Rodriguez.

I won't mind having him in the team for a reasonable price. The squad needs depth and Mahrez could be helpful imo.

He wants to be a starter IMO :) I would rather use Willian and Traore as rotation players. We have to focus on improving our starting 11, we have enough depth ;)

If he wants to be a starter, then I can't see him here, because I don't believe he is able to get over Pedro or Willian. I agree with you about that we have to improve our starting 11, that's why I want to see Sanchez with Chelsea shirt. Also, I'd definitely prefer Mahrez over Traore for squad depth.

Yeah, the last thing they really need is another very good attacking player. They're so reliant on Kane for goals. Not sure I can see a player like James ever going there. He'll have offers from bigger clubs.

It's just an example. <_<

What we know is that he think we are a proper club, so if Conte interested, we have a very good chance to sign him.

I am of the opinion that Mahrez could find that drive again he had in that title winning season with Conte and with our ambitions. Leicester as a whole was bad this season, we as the ones who suffered similar consequences after a title winning season should understand a bit that a failed season doesn't mean the player is bad. The negative momentum of the situtation just sucks everybody in and some kind of change is needed to rediscover your form, like our players have this season. Kante didn't stay, joined us instead and maintained his level or even upped i. I think had he stayed at Leicester he would have been sucked in too and we would be having question marks over him.

What I'm trying to say is that I would take him for a reasonable price, so that risk-reward relation makes it feasible. Leicester also aren't in a position to play hardball, because he has expressed his wish to leave publicly and I believe handed in a transfer request. The trump ace is in the buyer's hands, and we even signed Kante for peanuts after a worldie season even though he didn't kick up any fuss. I believe we can get him for less than £30 mill, maybe even around £20 mill region.

Not to mention he was really good at AFCON and in Champions league :) It was something like Hazard last season IMO ...
