Tottenham interested in Leicester striker Islam Slimani

Tottenham are interested in Leicester City striker Islam Slimani.

The Telegraph says Spurs manager Jose Mourinho is desperately targeting a replacement for the injured Harry Kane, who will miss most of the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery to repair a ruptured tendon in his left hamstring.

And after going three games without scoring in the Premier League, Tottenham are now interested in signing Leicester and Algeria striker Slimani.

The 31-year-old is currently plying his trade on loan at Monaco in Ligue 1 but Aston Villa were reportedly interested in cutting his move short.

Mourinho is searching for a targetman to bolster his attack as they go in the hunt for a Champions League spot come the end of the season.
