Liverpool agree €55m deal for Riyad Mahrez

  Liverpool agree €55m deal for Riyad Mahrez Liverpool have agreed a fee of €55m (roughly £48.7m) with Leicester City for Riyad Mahrez, according to a report from beIN SPORTS in France. The Algerian, according to the report, will have a medical with the Reds tomorrow ahead of the move. Earlier today, it was reported by the Press Association that Liverpool were not interested in Mahrez and that they’d even contacted The Foxes to let them know that reports of their interest were wide of the mark. However, beIN seem to think differently and are reporting that the former PFA Player’s Player of the Year will indeed make a switch to Anfield as a replacement for Philippe Coutinho who is set to become a Barcelona player in a £142m deal.

Huddersfield Town have completed the capture of attacking midfielder Alex Pritchard from Norwich City for a reported fee of £14 million.

The 24-year-old had been the subject of interest from Huddersfield for a couple of weeks, with David Wagner seemingly admitting defeat at the start of the month as he rued the cost of English players.

But Wagner has now successfully bolstered his attacking ranks, with Pritchard - who joined Norwich from Tottenham in August 2016 - offering flair and versatility.

The former England Under-21 international is comfortable playing through the middle or on either flank and has notable ability on the ball.

How much is Pritchard worth?

  How much is Pritchard worth? How much is Norwich City midfielder Alex Pritchard worth in the current transfer market? Despite sporting director Stuart Webber making it clear that Norwich are under no pressure to sell this month, the club do still need to sell before they can buy. Norwich are in need of reinforcements for the second-half of the season and selling Pritchard could set the club up to do a lot of good business in the window. Many fans believe that a right-back, winger and a striker is still needed before the end of the month, with the club struggling to score goals in the Championship this season. With Cameron Jerome seemingly out in the cold, Nelson Oliveira is the only recognised striker at the club.

"He is exactly the type of player that we like to work with at this club. Alex is a young, British player who arrives as one of the top performers in the Championship and with a desire to prove himself in the Premier League.

"Now we will work hard with him to give him every possibility of being a success for us in the top division."

Pritchard - who is the club's second January signing after the loan acquisition of Terence Kongolo - could make his debut against West Ham on Saturday.
