West Ham and West Brom interested in Leicester City forward Islam Slimani in bid to boost firepower

31 May

West Ham and West Brom are both keen on a deal for Leicester striker Islam Slimani.

The Algerian had a mixed first season with the former champions, managing just 13 starts in the Premier League.

He managed a total of eight goals in 29 appearances in all competitions but a lot more was expected from him following his £29m move from Sporting Lisbon in August.

Now, according to reports in Portugal, Sporting are interested in signing him back and believe Leicester may be interested in doing business.

However, Portuguese newspaper Correio da Manha has revealed that the Primeira Liga giants are wary of interest from both West Ham and West Brom.

The two Premier League clubs are expected to add some much needed fire power to their squads when the window opens and Sporting reckon they could turn to Slimani.
