Algerian Islam Slimani has 31 goals in his 46 games for Sporting Lisbon

Sporting Lisbon forward Islam Slimani has been given permission to leave Algeria’s training camp to have a medical with Leicester City.

It is believed the Premier League champions have agreed a fee of £29m for the player.

Slimani, 28, has been with Sporting since 2013 and scored 27 goals for the Portuguese side last season.

He also scored twice at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil as Algeria reached the knockout stages for the first time.
