Juventus have joined the race to sign Leicester star Riyad Mahrez in the summer and hope to pip Liverpool to his signature.
Mahrez was one of the stars of the show as Leicester won the Premier League last season, and although he has failed to match such heights in this campaign, his stock has not dropped that much.
The Foxes managed to keep hold last summer but there is every chance he will be on the move at the end of the season and Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is known to be very keen.
The German has put Mahrez high on his wanted list as he looks to reshape his Reds squad over the summer, but reports in Italy now claim he will face strong competition from Italian champions Juve.
The Old Lady are also keen on the playmaker and are reported to have already sounded out Leicester regards a possible deal in the hope of stealing a march on their rivals.
Arsenal have also tried and failed to sign Mahrez in the past and could reignite their interest if Leicester give any indication they will sell when the transfer window re-opens.
