Man City tipped to make perfect Riyad Mahrez replacement

Man City are considering options for a new right winger to replace Riyad Mahrez.

The Algerian superstar is set to join Al-Hilal this summer after Man City agreed a £30m move for the 32-year-old winger.

He has scored 78 goals in 236 appearances across his five seasons with City and has won every possible trophy with the Cityzens.

Mahrez has reportedly signed a three-year deal worth £36m a year with the Saudi Arabian side.

He had two years left on his Man City deal after agreeing to a contract extension last summer.

Now City will have to bring in a replacement to fill the void and Crystal Palace star Michael Olise has been identified as that man.

He has scored two goals and made 11 assists in 40 appearances for the Eagles last season.

Olise has a £35m release clause and City could make a bargain signing this summer.

Gabby Agbonhalor told Football Insider: “I don’t think he’s quite as good as Mahrez.

“I really rate Mahrez, and I thought he was really underrated at City. His ball control, his finishing, his dribbling, his creativity.

“City have got to be careful. They’ve lost Gundogan, they’re losing Mahrez. Olise would be a great signing, but he’s no Mahrez. Not yet.

“They’ve lost two of their best players and the replacements coming in don’t look to have that same star power.
