The next Riyad Mahrez?

After terrorizing Premier League defences for nine seasons with both Leicester and Manchester City, Algerian legend Riyad Mahrez left Europe last summer to join Al-Ahli in the Saudi Pro League.

Though still very much in form, with 11 goals and 14 assists in 32 appearances this season, the winger is slowly approaching the inevitable end to his career. Cutting in onto his left foot, the now 33-year-old is renowned for his electric dribbling and creative ability in the final third, having totalled 148 assists throughout his career.

Going back to his roots within French football, having played for AAS Sarcelles, Quimper FC and Le Havre AC, we took a look at the players playing in the country who appear to have similar profiles.
