Slimani joined English football in 2016 when he became a record signing for Leicester City, but he has failed to live up to his price tag at the King Power Stadium.

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.

And now Besiktas, who were linked with him last winter, have registered an interest once again. Leicester reportedly prefer to sell Slimani, rather than loan him out for a second time

He also helped Leicester City to the quarter-finals of the Champions League where they remained unbeaten at home throughout their entire European campaign.

Slimani has also been targeted by West Ham, former club Sporting and Fenerbahce this summer, with his time at Leicester clearly looking like it has come to an end.

He recently spent time on loan at Newcastle United, where he failed to score for the Magpies in his short spell at the Premier League club. Slimani would bring fantastic aerial ability to whichever side he ends up signing for.
