Tottenham Hotspur close to Islam Slimani deal
Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly close to securing the signature of Sporting Lisbon striker Islam Slimani.
The 27-year-old, who has represented Algeria on 43 occasions, scored 31 times in 46 appearances for his Portuguese club during the 2015-16 campaign.
Leicester City and Manchester United have both previously been linked with a move for the forward, but according to A Bola, Spurs are closing on a £15m deal.
It is understood that Slimani, who joined Sporting from CR Belouizdad in the summer of 2013, has a £24m release clause in his current deal.
