Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare says the club have received no offers for Arsenal target Riyad Mahrez despite rumours linking the Algerian international to a move to Arsenal this summer.
Mahrez has been the subject of plenty of transfer speculation since he took the decision to release a statement at the end of May, saying he was “fiercely ambitious” and had “informed the club that I feel now is the time to move on”.
But Shakespeare says he’s not concerned about losing his prized asset.
“I’m not worried,” he told Sky Sports.
“Can it be disappointing when a player comes out publically? Yes.
“I think we have to look what is behind that as well, in terms of advice.
“We have to understand Riyad’s concerns but while he is contracted to the football club, and while we’ve had no bids for him, which we haven’t, he has to be professional and we have to be professional.
“He has to be fully committed here and I expect him to do that.”
