Islam Slimani continues to train away from the Sporting CP first team.

A target for Leicester City and West Ham United, along with Turkey's Trabzonspor, the Algeria international wants to be allowed to move on.

However, Sporting CP president Bruno de Carvalho is insisting on top price to sell Slimani, which has angered the player.

The striker has been banned from training with the first team squad while he refuses to commit to the new season.
