African star reportedly in talks with Liverpool over January move

According to reports, Riyadh Mahrez is currently in talks with Liverpool over a possible move to Anfield this month.

The Algerian international has however also attracted interest from Arsenal and the Gunners could stand in the way of the Reds aim to sign him.

Liverpool are in need of a new quality attacker after they lost Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona last week. The Brazilian playmaker swapped Anfield for the Camp Nou in a staggering £142 million deal.

Manager Jurgen Klopp is wasting no time in bringing in a replacement for the 25-year-old and has his eyes set on Mahrez who won the 2015-16 Premier League title with Leicester.

Thomas Lemar was long reported to be a target of Liverpool but as Monaco are hesitant to sell the talented youngster at this point in time, Liverpool have had to look elsewhere.

Mahrez like Coutinho is a fantastic player who has been in great form this season.
