Transfer Deadline Day: Leicester to complete record deal for Slimani

Leicester have agrees a club-record fee to sign Sporting striker Islam Slimani, Press Association Sport understands.

The forward is undergoing a medical and is set to join the Foxes after expressing his desire to move to the King Power Stadium.

Sporting had been asking for 40million euros – around £34million – for Slimani.

Slimani scored 27 goals in 33 games as Sporting finished runners up to Benfica in the Primeira Liga last season and will link up with Algeria team-mate Riyad Mahrez at the Foxes.

The deal for Slimani would eclipse the £16million Leicester paid CSKA Moscow for forward Ahmed Musa in the summer.
