Leicester City are ready to relinquish themselves of Islam Slimani with clubs interested. Another target has been linked to the Foxes.

Before Leicester City meet Tottenham Hotspur in the capital on Sunday afternoon, Foxes of Leicester will roundup the latest news from the King Power club.

First of all, it’s been the usual rollercoaster ride for the Blue Army of late: the Foxes lost to lowly Fulham in the Premier League – at home! Then qualified top of their Europa League Group to progress seeded in the next round of knockout fixtures.

Meanwhile, Leicester defeated Sheffield United then brushed aside Brighton & Hove Albion. Before losing 2-0 on Filbert Way to a vastly improved Everton under Carlo Ancelotti.

Nevertheless, Brendan Rodgers’ team remain fourth in the English top-flight. Which is achieving the side’s ambition, whilst dealing with a plethora of significant injuries.

Incoming and outgoing transfer talk for Leicester City

Islam Slimani is the topic of conversation for transfer speculation this month. To be honest, Rodgers isn’t going to use him unless Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho both get injured.

In that case there are backups like Ayoze Perez who can do a job – possibly with more slickness – so there isn’t a need for the Algerian. Outfits from France are reportedly circling, as per Leicestershire Live.

Finally, Leicester are said to be considering a move for a French player. Reading midfielder Michael Olise, who is 19-year-old and has featured in every Championship match for the Royals this campaign is an apparent target. Read more here.

As previously mentioned, it is Spurs next for City; the Londoners are positioned second in the division. Therefore they are direct rivals to Leicester’s push for European football once more in 2021/22. Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min have been in glittering form for Tottenham, who have managed superb displays without even using star substitute Gareth Bale.
