Algerian international interest reignited

IslamSSlimaniHammers long term target Islam Slimani could leave Portugal this summer after changing his agent. The 26 year old has just split from his previous agent in order to be represented by Luca Bascherini. He had already had offers from German, Italian and English clubs last summer but Sporting CP had not wanted to let go.  They value him at 15 million euros with Schalke 04, Spurs, West Ham, Naples and Fiorentina are all claimed to be interested in the striker who scored 14 goals in 29 games this season.

Earlier this year Algerian international confirmed West ham had previously bid for him saying “It is true that there was an offer from West Ham, but I was happy with my team and I made a good choice. Stability is positive. I have to work harder to make progress.” The 28-capped international who scored two goals in the world cup continued: “I am focused on finishing the season at full strength and winning a title, at least. Then we’ll see. Maybe next year.”

  1. No we dont want Slimshady,if we were not good enough for him last year why try again.We want guys who want to play for us,not some geezer who turned us down once already

  2. He is not worth €15 full stop,how many North African players have been a success in the premier?
    There are better forwards out there that will be looking for clubs,if Ings goes to Liverpool Lambert will be up for grabs,Rhodes of Blackburn,Austin of OPR,Remy of Chelski
    Cissie of Newcastle,plus loads of African forwards in Europe.
    We already have Valencia,Sakho,Carroll and Lee its midfield we need some creativity and that’s not cheap.

  3. Couldn’t agree more buns. No thanks.

  4. Bubs

  5. It’s ok hammer4life my good lady has nice buns
    What country does he come from Matte I presume Hachim he is from Algeria
    What’s he going to cost Matte and will they let him go
    Also Matte if Rafa comes it would pay us to try an offer for Matta at Man U they don’t want him and he would do a great job for us in Downings role.

  6. I have read about this lad before Bubs,he is wanted by the big boys,Real,Barca,Utd.He is going to the top of the game it appears 😉

  7. Mastour that is,not bloody Slimani.He can stay where he is 😉

  8. You are probably right Tyson,
    Last week Matte told me about another great talent at Milan he must be mystic meg because this week all the top dogs are sniffing around him,
    Matte needs to ring the 2 Daves in private so his talent spotting is not wasted,

  9. Even if we did sign him Sam would make him wait at least 10 years to break into the team so he could have time to forget all that tippy tippy stuff and just hoof it up to big Andy at the earliest chance.

  10. Mastour that is not the Slimani rubbish

  11. Lol,thats Matte,got us talking about two players at once,bloody Italians,you cant trust them,lol 😉

  12. No thankyou.Turned us down once,he jog on.Slimani that is not Mastour.See what you have down Matte,caused chaos!!! 😀

  13. Ahaha… Italians… Bad People… Lol
