Chelsea are planning a second raid on Premier League champions Leicester City for winger Riyad Mahrez, Express Sport has revealed.
According to recent reports, the Algeria international will turn down a £100,000-a-week contract because he wants at least £150,000-a-week, which is what new Chelsea signing N'Golo Kante will earn at his new club.
Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri is confident the 25-year-old will stay but Arsenal and Barcelona have also been linked with a move for the talented midfielder.
"I am very confident with him. He stays here with us," Ranieri told reporters.
"He enjoys it and is not a man saying 'coach I want to go'. He is happy."
At the end of last season, Mahrez won the Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year award after an impressive campaign at the King Power Stadium.
