Riyad Mahrez Profile

The first Algerian footballer to win the Premier League, Riyad Mahrez came to prominence after Leicester City secured his signing from that French hotbed of young talent, Le Havre. He would go on to become the Foxes creative lynchpin as the club stunned the footballing world with their 2016 triumph, his skill on the wing providing countless assists and goals along the way. His performances prompted a £60m move to Manchester City in 2018, becoming the most expensive African footballer ever as well City's record transfer fee at the time. Whilst other players may have taken most of the plaudits since his move there, Mahrez has remained one of the club's most consistent and effective players, continuing to wreak havoc down the wing and delivering match-winning performances just when they needed it.
