Algerian striker Islam Slimani is a target for Premier League side West Ham this summer, according to Foot Mercato.
The 29-year-old, who has just been named in the latest Algeria squad, recently spent some time at Newcastle United on a loan spell where he failed to score for the club.
Manuel Pellegrini is reportedly targeting the forward in the summer transfer window as the Hammers prepare for the new season.
Slimani joined English football in 2016 when he became a record signing for Leicester City, but has failed to live up to his price tag at the King Power Stadium.
West Ham have been linked with several centre forwards in the past year, and tried to sign Slimani last January on a loan deal too but ended up landing Jordan Hugill.
Scoring 48 goals in 82 league games in Portugal for Sporting, Slimani certainly knows how to find the back of the net when given the correct service as he is lethal in the air.
He also helped Leicester City to the quarter-finals of the Champions League where they remained unbeaten at home throughout their entire European campaign.
Leicester are more inclined to selling Slimani outright, rather than seeing him depart on another loan deal.
