Kurt Zouma and Islam Slimani - The Footballing World

Leicester to rival West Ham for Slimani

Leicester City are set to rival West Ham United for Sporting Lisbon striker Islam Slimani.

The Algeria international seemed on the brink of signing for the Hammers earlier this month, but a deal never fell through.

However, new Upton Park manager Slaven Bilic is prepared to resurrect a move for the 27-year-old, who has two years left to run on his current contract at the Jose Alvalade.

Now Claudio Ranieri’s Foxes are eyeing Slimani, who scored 15 times in 33 appearances in all competitions last season, with Fiorentina and Fenerbahce also holding an interest in the Ain Benian academy product, but it remains to be seen whether Sporting will sell one of their prize assets.
