Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri has again urged Riyad Mahrez to stay with them.

Ranieri says Mahrez should avoid becoming simply one of a number of stars at an elite club like Arsenal and continue to be Leicester’s leading man.

“I think Mahrez for us is very important as our light,” he said. “If he goes in another big team, there are so many lights, so many stars, why?

“Stay with us, it’s much better, much better. He’s our champion. If he goes in another team, there are so many champions.

“He knows me, I know him very well and I understand when he plays so-so and I can permit to stay on the pitch. When another manager, when he plays so-so, there are so many other stars I put him on the bench.

“It’s important you give confidence. But if you put him on the bench he gets down. I think, I hope he can stay with us because it’s important for us and it’s important for him.”

    Why must you guys continue to repeat the same story day in, day out.. If this Mahrez deal will click, it,let it be done with,otherwise let s have some peace. Other teams will take three or four days to tie up a deal,but Arsenal own would drag on for weeks or months. Nonsense!.
