Watford boss Marco Silva wants to reunite with £29m man Islam Slimani

But he will be available for much less than that

Slimani celebrating for Leicester

Out-of-favor striker is unhappy with the game time in recent weeks, and is now 4th choice striker.

Islam signed for the Foxes for a record £29m in 2016 and ex Sporting boss Marco Silva is a big fan of the forward.

His goal-scoring record during his time at Sporting ranked him as one of the most prolific goalscorers in Europe, but he has yet to find that form for Leicester.

Slimani has scored 12 goals in 40 appearances for the Foxes, but now finds himself a long way down the pecking order.

Englands number 9 is the clear choice of forward for Leicester alongside the hard working Shinji Okazaki with Kelechi Iheanacho waiting in the wings.

Watford will try and sign Islam Slimani in January with a bid thought to be around £20m which should be enough to move him out of Leicester.

There is no doubt that Islam has talent and is deadly with his head, he is just not in Claude Puels plans and has a lot of competition.
