The Algeria international joined Pep Guardiola's Premier League champions from Leicester City for a reported £60 million this month and has set his sights on winning a trophy every season.

"I'm an ambitious player, I want to win trophies every season," Mahrez told the press. "I think Manchester City is a club who try and have ambition to win every season.

"It's a big club, the football they play is amazing, with a big manager. That's why I'm here."

On Guardiola, he added: "He's very ambitious. He wants to win everything. He works very hard in training on small details. I will improve under him and he will improve the squad."

The 27-year-old made 36 Premier League appearances for the Foxes last season and scored 12 goals while also providing 11 assists.
