Chelsea are preparing to offer Ghana winger Christian Atsu plus a reported £15million to sign Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez, according to reports.

Guus Hiddink’s side have struggled since the beginning of the season as they find themselves in a disappointing 14th position with 25 points.

Mahrez who has been outstanding for Leicester City so far in the English Premier League scoring 15 goals has been a major target for the English Champions.

Leicester coach Claudio Ranieri remains grounded on keeping his star man until at least the end of the season.

The Algeria star could, however, be on his way out to the Stamford Bridge after Chelsea reportedly offered out of sight Christian Atsu plus cash in other to lure 24-year-old Mehrez to the Club.

Atsu has been deemed substandard since joining the blues two seasons ago from Portuguese Champions FC Porto.

The Ghanaian international would, however, embrace the move having failed to make a single appearance for the English giants.

The 2015 Cup of Nations best player has already been linked to Levante, Espanyol Galatasaray and Hamburg who are all interested in signing the player on loan.
