Can Islam Slimani help maintain the good times at Leicester City?

With over £1 billion spent on general transfer-fees across the entirety of the English top-flight so far this summer, the 2016/17 Premier League campaign is bound to excite one way or another in the upcoming season.

 

For Leicester City fans in particular, the probable signing of Sporting Lisbon’s Islam Slimani – likely to be completed before deadline-day finally comes to a long awaited close this evening – could potentially help keep the good times flowing down at the King Power Stadium after last season’s triumphant title winning campaign from the Foxes.

 

The highly coveted Algerian international is set to arrive with 33 goals scored in his last 44 games for Sporting Lisbon, which has certainly helped ignite a distinct buzz in and around the Foxes this deadline-day…

 

 

…and with the prospect of also completing a deal for fellow Sporting Lisbon target, Adrien Silva, in the upcoming hours…

 

 

…Leicester City fans clearly have every reason for excitement right in the here and now…

 

 

Although Islam Slimani could admittedly fail to take to the Premier League as readily as some have recently suggested…

 

 

…the thought of the 28-year-old front-man successfully linking up with fellow Algerian teammate, Riyad Mahrez, in the Foxes first choice starting XI – could really prove something special to behold among the English top-flight this season…

 

 

Such a signing could even serve to disrupt the usual balance among the upper echelons of the table for a second term in a row, it must be said…

 

 

…as the overall indications surrounding Islam Slimani, and his proposed move to Leicester City, clearly seem worthy of all the relevant hype and sensation at this particular stage in the proceedings…
