Leicester Gossip: New deals for Mahrez, Vardy, Kante and Schmeichel

A number of Claudio Ranieri’s stars have been linked with a move away this summer after leading the Foxes to the Premier League title this year.

The Telegraph claim Leicester have moved quickly to keep winger Riyad Mahrez by offering the 25-year-old a bumper £100,000-a-week contract.

The Algeria international has been linked with Barcelona, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain and recently refused to rule out a summer exit.

Leicester spent just £400,000 on Mahrez from Le Havre in January 2014, but would demand at least £30million if he was to leave after a stunning campaign.

Mahrez, who scored 18 goals last term, is said to be the latest star to receive a new and improved deal, joining striker Jamie Vardy, midfielder N’Golo Kante and goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.

Arsenal have been heavily linked with England star Vardy after triggering his £20m release clause earlier this month, offering him a £120,000-a-week deal.

The Gunners and Chelsea are also said to be keen on Kante, with both clubs reportedly willing to activate his £22m buy-out clause this summer.
