Crystal Palace ready to pounce for Leicester striker Islam Slimani

Crystal Palace are ready to pounce for Leicester City striker Islam Slimani.

The centre-forward has announced in the Algerian press he wants to leave the Foxes in January.

Palace are keen, where Slimani would arrive as competition for injury-plagued centre-forward Christian Benteke. However, Palace are not alone in their interest.

Also keen are Rennes, which are interested in taking Slimani on-loan for the second-half of the season.

Slimani is in his second season at Leicester after joining last year from Sporting CP.
