|Slimani turned out for Sporting before moving to the Premier League, where he has played for Leicester and Newcastle.
Portuguese sbo128 outlet A Bola claim Sporting Lisbon are interested in re-signing Newcastle United loanee Islam Slimani, two years after he left the Liga NOS outfit to join Leicester City.
The 29-year-old flopped during his spell with Newcastle during the second half of the 2017-18 campaign, after Rafa Benitez landed the Algeria international on loan back in the January transfer window.
Slimani made just four appearances for the Toon, suffering with a groin injury that kept sbo128 him sidelined for the majority of his stay in the north east. He clocked up just 130 minutes of football.
Towards the end of the season, Dwight Gayle had earned his place back in the side due to the lack of an impact made by Slimani, ruling out any chance of a permanent move for the target man.
Now returning to Leicester, Claude Puel's side could indeed look to send the powerful striker back to his old club Sporting with the Portuguese outfit in need of reinforcements after finishing in a disappointing third place.
It is believed that Sporting want Slimani on loan, but it remains to be seen if they can afford what is likely to be an expensive loan fee and the striker's wages. sbo128
