Chinese club want to sign Leicester City striker

Leicester City to offer a new deal to Ranieri

According to Sky Sports, Chinese club Tianjin are interested in signing Leicester City striker Islam Slimani, and they’re prepared to pay big money to get him.

There has so far been no formal bid for the striker, and no direct contact between the two clubs.

But Leicester’s club record signing cost £29m in the summer, and so Tianjin would have to offer significantly more than that, for Leicester to be interested.
