EDF: Mahrez ideal for Roma

Eusebio Di Francesco admits Riyad Mahrez “has the characteristics” to play for Roma but refused to confirm the club’s interest in the Leicester City winger.

Links between Mahrez and Roma have intensified in recent days, and Di Francesco coyly suggested the Algerian was the ideal reinforcement for the Giallorossi’s right flank.

“I don’t have to stage an advertising campaign, maybe we are following him but I’m not going to enter this discussion,” the Coach said at a Press conference.

“We are looking for a winger that plays on the right and he has the characteristics for this position.”
