this player the perfect replacement, if Riyad Mahrez leaves ?

Could Claude Puel go
down south to Brighton and make a cunning move for Anthony Knockaert.
The former City winger is a player simular to Mahrez and has done
well in his return to the Premier League
Knockaert shined in a City shirt, especially
during the two first seasons joining from Guingamp and like Riyad
Mahrez a Steve Walsh finding. To see the former fox back at King
Power Stadium, would be great for fans as well as the player himself.
Brighton will probably not let the winger go for free, as City did,
when he left for Belgian club Standard Liege. Knockaert has this
season shown his very best and the former France U.21 international
would of course be a direct replacement for Claude Puel.
Knockeart would also blend in with the group as he has done before.
All of the previous staff of Pearson, Walsh and Shakespeare are gone,
who we all know are not best of friends with the player that became
The position of Mahrez is a key and to replace him with a French
talking player would fit for Claude Puel who could go in real detail
and build up a positive relationship with the player and get his
return to Leicester City as perfect as possible.
Hatem Ben-Arfa is the player talked about as the one replacing
Mahrez, but for tcf Knockeart (26) is a much better alternative, but
City owners must dig deep to bring in a player who left on a free,
and that might be a problem to accept.
Ben-Arfa and New York City's Jack Harrison are the players mentioned
the most, and Knockaert is not "in the rumours" so far, but to see
him back would the interesting and we all know that goals can be
scored and assists can be accomplished.
Leicester City manager Claude Puel is in for an interesting January
and all comes down to receiving bids acceptable and if anyone comes
in with a bid of £ 40 million, Mahrez is Leicester history.
Liverpool who most certainly will see Coutinho leave, could be eager.
Chelsea and Arsenal are both in lack of quality players in the flank
positions, and Manchester United could be desperate to close the gap
to Manchester City. Pep are also looking at new faces, who knows.
