He’s a goalscorer

While Slimani has found first-team minutes hard to come by since he joined Leicester in 2016, he has still shown his goalscoring capabilities by scoring 13 goals in 46 appearances in all competitions for the Foxes, including four in three EFL Cup appearances.

While the 29-year-old has 26 in 55 for Algeria, he earned his move to the Premier League with 57 goals in 111 games for Sporting Lisbon, and having scored just 22 goals in 24 top flight matches this season Newcastle are certainly in need of more of a goal threat.
