Hercule Poirot of the scouting world
- May 10, 2009
The end of transfer window could be very rough on the Rock.In a bad spiral with a new defeat in Ligue 1 against Strasbourg (1-3), AS Monaco could see their striker Islam Slimani leave. According to our information, Tottenham - who will lose Christian Eriksen, bound for Inter - and Manchester United are looking for an attacking player and are increasingly exploring the Islam Slimani track. The two Premier League clubs have entered into discussions with the entourage of the Algerian international for a transfer before the end of the winter transfer window.
A revelation in doubt
Arrived in summer 2019 in Monaco on loan from Leicester, the 31-year-old player did not take much time to adapt to his new team. The Algerian scored 7 goals and delivered 8 assists in 13 games played in Ligue 1. But since the ouster of Leonardo Jardim and the arrival of Robert Moreno, Slimani has suffered the new tactical system of the Spaniard. He has only played half an hour since the start of the year. It was against PSG on January 12. He had also scored the goal of equalization (3-3).
