The Algerian handed in a transfer request at the end of last season, and has attracted interest from various clubs.

However, the Foxes head coach, Craig Shakespeare confirmed they have received and rejected a bid from Serie A side, AS Roma.

“I think I was quoted on the last press day that there were no bids. There was a bid from Roma, I was told afterwards, so I would like to put the record straight on that one," Shakespeare was quoted as saying by Squawka.

“It was politely declined on the basis that it was a low offer. Of what that offer is, don’t ask me how much because I don’t know and I don’t get involved in that.”
