Leicester City striker Islam Slimani has emerged as a transfer target of Turkish club Besiktas.
Islam became Leicester's club-record signing after signing for £28m from Sporting Lisbon following the title-winning season of 2015/16. However, the striker has failed to cement a starting place since his arrival and could be headed for an exit just 18 months later. According to reports, Besiktas President, Fikret Orman, is keen on the Algeria international and was in attendance at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday to watch Slimani play against Fleetwood Town in the FA Cup. Though Leicester are yet to comment on a potential move, it's believed the club would be willing to listen to offers for Slimani as well as fellow striker Leonardo Ulloa. Jan 17 - 2:02 PM
