This January, Islam Slimani was a striker in demand. Almost anyone that was in need of a striker was linked with the Algerian.
Sides such as Aston Villa, Inter, Manchester United, and Tottenham were all rumoured to be attempting to sign the front man until the end of the season.
However, a deal wasn’t possible due to reportedly unreasonable demands set by Leicester City and AS Monaco. According to Algerian news outlet Compétition, the costs were wildly unaffordable for such a short-term deal.
