“Exists”: the manager admits to the transfer with respect to the Aston Villa target

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that there is interest in Islam Slimani, but has admitted that an agreement with Aston Villa to sign the attacker is “complicated”.

Villa is believed to be planning to land on loan to Algeria for the remainder of the campaign to give Dean Smith a new attack option in the Premier League battle for survival.

But Slimani is currently in Monaco, after joining the French team with a seasonal loan in August. There is no recall clause, which means that it depends on Ligue 1 if it returns to Leicester.

Rodgers was asked about the situation in his press conference today and confirmed that there is interest from another club, which is thought to be Villa.

Islam Slimani scores a goal for Monaco

“It looks like it will be complicated,” Rodgers told LeicestershireLive. “There is interest in him and he should be there for the season.

“I’m not sure anything will happen there.”

Slimani has been ruled out of Monaco’s 11th for the last three games and Leicester is deemed open to the idea that he would return to England to join Villa.

But with Monaco holding all the cards, Villa will have to be patient in pursuing the 31-year-old who has scored seven goals in 14 appearances this season.

Villa is about to complete the arrival of striker Mbwana Samatta from Genk and wants to sign another striker on top of that deal.
