Adrien Silva: Leicester City striker Islam Slimani wants to rejoin Sporting Lisbon

The Algeria international has failed to reach the height of his career since leaving the Portuguese club

Adrien Silva claims Leicester City striker Islam Slimani desires to return to Sporting Lisbon this summer.

The forward enjoyed an impressive time with Sporting, scoring 48 goals in 82 league games, performances which saw the Foxes pay a club-record fee of £30million to secure his signature in 2016.

At the King Power Stadium, he failed to make much impact and was sent on loan to Newcastle United, before he moved to Fernabache temporarily at the start of last season for a chance to rediscover his form.
