The 28-year-old has been attracting plenty of interest from the Premier League this summer, with Sky Sports reporting that a number of clubs – two of which will play in the Champions League this season – have made enquiries.

The Sun bill Everton and Southampton as potential summer suitors, amid news that the 6 foot 2 goalscorer has handed in a transfer request at Estádio José Alvalade following a formal bid from an unnamed English side.

Slimani, who is expected to cost upwards of £20million, also snubbed an improved contract offer from Sporting earlier this week, making a summer switch to the Premier League all the more likely.
