Leicester want impressive striker but Everton also admirers

Leicester City want to bolster their attacking ranks with the summer signing of Sporting Lisbon striker Islam Slimani according to The Daily Mail, but the report states that both Everton and Crystal Palace have an interest in the centre forward also.

The Foxes have had a remarkable campaign and won the Premier League title against all the odds in Claudio Ranieri’s debut season in charge at the King Power Stadium.

The attacking threat of Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez has been central to their success but the club are expected to add to their existing weaponry ahead of playing in the Champions League next season.

Slimani has been a consistent performer for the Portuguese club and a reason why the capital city outfit have put forward a domestic title challenge this term.

He also impressed for Algeria in the World Cup in 2014 and has long been rumoured as a target for English teams.

Should Leicester make their move, Everton and Palace are also said to be interested and have inquired over Slimani’s availability in the recent past according to the report.
