Saint Etienne struggling to cover wages for Leicester striker Slimani

Leicester City striker Islam Slimani remains on the radar of Saint Etienne.

Former Foxes manager Claude Puel, in charge at ASSE, is keen on a reunion with the Algeria international.

ASSE hope to take Slimani on-loan to the end of this season, but his wages are proving a stumbling block.

The Ligue Une outfit cannot afford to cover 100 per cent of Slimani's €92,000-a-week wages.

The 32 year-old spent last season on-loan at AS Monaco.
