Islam Slimani: Aston Villa interested in loan deal for Leicester City striker


Aston Villa are interested in signing Leicester City striker Islam Slimani, who is currently at Monaco on loan, while Mbwana Samatta is close to completing a deal with the Premier League club.

Samatta is due to undergo a medical in Birmingham over the weekend, while Villa's bosses process the necessary paperwork to apply for a work permit.

A fee of around £8.5m was agreed with Genk on Thursday.

The Slimani deal is more complicated, from Villa's perspective. He is currently on a season-long loan with Monaco, and so Villa would need agreement from both them and Leicester for a new loan deal to be sanctioned.

Ultimate source seems to be this newspaper in France, https://le10sport.com/football/mercato/exclu-mercato-as-monaco-un-club-anglais-degaine-pour-slimani-488358, who say we've made a bid.

Rodgers has said  that Leicester can't call him back from his loan with Monaco, so very little chance of us getting him even if we wanted to, because why would Monaco agree to cut his loan short just so Leicester can get some money for him.
