Author of a convincing season from a statistical standpoint at AS Monaco, Islam Slimani was not the subject of any offer to stay on the Rock.
Here he is again in Leicester, where he still has a year of contract, and where he does not seem to unleash passions either. Invited to find a new club, he was recently announced in the sights of OM, which could afford an experienced striker and lapped in Ligue 1 games for next season. Especially with the Champions League looming.
But it is another French club which is preparing to jump at the opportunity, reveals France Football. The northern club must compensate for the inevitable but not yet concluded departure of Victor Osimhen, and will therefore have the financial means to afford Fennec. His arrival could also serve to replace Loïc Rémy, who gave up company with the Mastiffs to engage in Italy. The sum of 10 ME is requested by the English club to complete the operation, and the African champion could thus cross the Channel again.
