English champions Leicester City are monitoring the situation of Sporting Lisbon star Islam Slimani ahead of the summer transfer window.

The Foxes boss, Claudio Ranieri is expected to bring in a forward-minded player as he seeks to provide ample support to Jamie Vardy and Leonardo Ulloa next season.

According to The Telegraph, the Premier League holders could lodge a bid for Slimani, who has been in exceptional touch for Sporting this season.

Sporting currently value their player at around £25m but this is unlikely to come as a hindrance for a side that aim to challenge Europe's elite in the Champions League next term.

The Algerian international has amassed 30 goals in 42 outings for the Primeira Liga outfit this season.
