Sporting reject €25m bid for Islam Slimani from Leicester City

Sporting Lisbon have rejected a €25m offer from Premier League champions Leicester City for Islam Slimani, according to France Football.

The player had previously had a release clause worth €30m, but that expired on the 15th June.

Sporting can now negotiate whatever fee they desire and are said to be quoting close to €40m to interested parties.

West Brom and Swansea both made €20m offers earlier on in the window, but Leicester are the most credible candidate for the player’s signature at the time of writing.
