Claude Puel Wants To Keep Riyad Mahrez And Islam Slimani But Admits Ahmed Musa Could Leave

Claude Puel wants to keep Riyad Mahrez and Islam Slimani at Leicester City but has admitted Ahmed Musa could leave in January.

“This period is always a difficult period with speculation about different players,” Puel said. “I am happy with ‘Slim’. We have a lot of strikers and offensive players and we need to have good balance to give them game time.
“I am happy with him [Mahrez] and I think he is enjoying his football. He is happy to play with this team. He has good results with assists and goals in recent games. I think it is important he keeps this focus and concentration until the end of the season.
One player who could be on the way out of the King Power Stadium is Nigeria international Ahmed Musa, who failed to earn even a place on the bench against Fleetwood, despite Puel resting a number of starters.
“We will see [about Musa]. Perhaps it could be a possibility. We will see with the player and the opportunity for the club also. I need to have discussions about some players.”
