Leicester still see Riyad Mahrez as a key player and expect him to return to the club following the international break after a Deadline Day move did not materialise, Sky sources understand.
Barcelona remain Mahrez's dream destination, and although the Spanish transfer window does not close until midnight on Friday, the La Liga giants are not expected to make a late attempt to sign him.
Mahrez handed in a transfer request in May, but promised to stay and fight for Leicester if no move materialised.
Sky Sports News has been told no bids have been made for Mahrez since Roma's £32m offer was rejected more than three weeks ago.
