Chinese club looking to bid £38m for Premier League striker
A Chinese Super League club are looking to submit an astonishing bid for Leicester striker, but Claudio Ranieri is not fond on selling the player.
According to reports in China, Algerian striker Islam Slimani is subject to interest from the Chinese Super League with a possible £38million bid being submitted.
The forward joined Leicester from Sporting CP following the Foxes title-winning season for a club-record transfer and has since not been able to replicate his form from Portugal.
Ranieri commented on the speculation in the week, stating “Slimani is not for sale. It is speculation”.
Even with the Italian’s comments, if the club were to receive an extraordinary offer for a player that is yet to hit optimum form, there is chance that he could leave.
Slimani is only the latest name on a long list of players linked to the Chinese Super League, with former Chelsea midfielder Oscar and former Manchester United and City striker Carlos Tevez the two latest players to make the switch.
