Reports: Barca Targeting African EPL Star

FC Barcelona are reportedly targeting one of Leicester City's prized assets at the end of this season.

The Latest On Balotelli's Future

According to the Daily Mirror, the Blaugrana are one of a number of clubs looking at Algerian winger Riyad Mahrez for the 2016/17 campaign.

The Foxes wide man has arguably been the driving force behind his team's attacks this season, and is seen as a potential candidate to lift the coveted PFA Player of the Season award.

Barcelona have arguably the strongest attacking trio in the world in Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez, but while it is unlikely Mahrez would displace any of them in the starting XI, he does have the technical qualities to fit right into the Catalan giants' squad and playing style.

It is believed that Arda Turan may leave the club at the end of the campaign, and has reportedly already received a big offer from a Chinese club, which may open the door for Mahrez to move.

'Suarez Has Psychological Problems'

Leicester have been the surprise of the EPL season, with the club on course to win their first Premier League title in their history less than one year after narrowly avoiding relegation from England's top flight.

Do you think Mahrez should join Barcelona if he gets the opportunity? Have your say in the comments section below.
