Tottenham Hotspur are ready to fight with Roma and neighbours Arsenal for the transfer of want away Leicester City attacker Riyad Mahrez, according to stories.

The Algeria international has so far been left disappointed in his effort to leave the King Power Stadium, as Roma’s initial offer was rebuffed earlier this month.

A revised proposal is expected to be made by the Italian side, while Arsenal have also shown a massive interest due to a failure to agree on a price with AS Monaco for winger Thomas Lemar.

The Sun suggests that Tottenham, still yet to get off the mark with the arrival of any footballers during the off-season, have now become the latest club to have shown an interest in the 26-year-old.

The North Londoners are also said to have used the lure of Champions League football – something rivals Arsenal cannot give – to lure Marez, who contributed straight six Premier League goals from out wide last year.
