Liverpool not interested in signing Riyad Mahrez

With Liverpool reportedly softening their stance over Barcelona's ongoing pursuit of Philippe Coutinho, the 2016 Player of the Year has emerged as a genuine contender to fill the Brazilian's void at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp released a nice statement wishing Coutinho well but looks to have a replacement already lined up.

Monaco have been weakened after seeing key players such as Kylian Mbappe, Bernardo Silva, Benjamin Mendy and Tiemoue Bakayoko leave, and it remains to be seen if they will allow yet another star to depart.

An earlier report in the Independent had claimed Mahrez was the backup option to Lemar - which seems odd given their very different positions and styles of play.

While she has a diverse array of moves at her disposal, she appears to be a bit slow, and, I'm guessing, isn't terribly powerful. Injustice 2 offers the latest DC fighting game experience that expands on the previous title's larger-than-life showdowns.


Mahrez is, thus, a viable target for the Gunners, who could add spark to Arsene Wenger's attack.

The Reds have also been linked with a move for Mahrez but have not made contact with the Foxes, according to Rob Tanner at the Leicester Mercury. He is a happy player and likes to play with his teammates.

Although his form dipped last season, he has shone this time around, scoring and assisting seven goals, including laying on the opener for Jamie Vardy in Liverpool's 2-1 win last month. Riyad is a valuable player to the team.

Meanwhile, Liverpool FC's first January signing Virgil van Dijk capped a brilliant debut for Klopp's side on Friday night when he scored the victor in the 2-1 derby win over Everton in the FA Cup third round.
