Ex-England international midfielder Danny Murphy believes Algerian international winger Riyad Mahrez must join Tottenham Hotspur.
Murphy has told Match of the Day, which was broadcast on November 30, that the Lily Whites need to sign a player like Mahrez.
The Leicester City attacker featured on the wing for the Foxes during their 2-1 triumph over Mauricio Pochettino’s men on Tuesday.
Mahrez cut inside and took aim, before curling the ball beyond goalkeeper Hugo Lloris to score his side’s second goal of the match.
“He’d suit Tottenham. They need someone like him,” Murphy said.
“They need someone who can add a bit of dynamism to their team.”
Pochettino’s side have now failed to beat West Bromwich Albion and Leicester in their last two fixtures, and have slipped down to seventh place in the English Premier League table.
On the other hand, Mahrez will want to help the Foxes claim the three points when they meet Burnley at home on Saturday.
