Roma have already raised their proposal for Leicester City forward Riyad Mahrez to €30m, claim France Football.

The Giallorossi interest in the Algeria international is gaining momentum fast and a deal could be on the cards next week.

While Sky Sport Italia noted an initial €23m bid was rejected, now France Football insist a new €30m offer is on the table.

However, the Italian television station continue to maintain the offer stands at €23m for the moment.
