Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez has arrived in Spain as he attempts to push through a move to Barcelona.
The winger asked to leave the Foxes in May as he is keen for a new challenge.
Leicester are willing to let the Algerian go and Roma looked to be his likeliest destination.
However, the Italian club failed to meet Mahrez’s £50m asking price and with time running out he is still looking for a move.
The 26-year-old has been granted permission by Algeria to leave the team’s training camp to sort out a deadline day switch.
And, according to SFR Sport, Mahrez has just landed in Barcelona in case they swoop for him.
The winger’s options are limited now with little time left, but it is reported Barca may move for him if they fail to sign Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho.
