Tottenham Hotspur keen to replace Harry Kane with Leicester City star

Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho is interested in making a move for Leicester City striker Islam Slimani, claims a report by the Telegraph.

Spurs are desperate to land a striker this month after receiving the news that England International Harry Kane will remain out of action until March.

Slimani is currently on loan with Monaco and has scored seven goals in 14 games in Ligue 1.

But Rodgers believes that the intricacies of a deal for him to return to the King Power Stadium and head out on loan to a Premier LEague rival could prove too difficult to make a reality.

“That looks like it’s probably going to be too complicated,” said Rodgers.

“There is an interest in him but he’s due to be at Monaco for the season so I’m not sure if anything would happen on that. It just may be a little bit complicated.”

City want Slimani in the shop window ahead of the summer, when they will hope to claw back some of the £28m they forked out for the Algerian international, who failed to live up to his price-tag.

Behind the scenes, there is a belief that he will likely remain in Ligue 1.

Slimani has not started any of Monaco’s last three matches amid a change in manager, and was left out of the squad in midweek, but did come off the bench to score an equaliser in a 3-3 draw with PSG last weekend.

He has 18 months remaining on his City contract.

The report does not mention whether Tottenham see Slimani as a target they could sign on loan of on a permanent deal.
