A fee of £23million is thought to be the fee Sporting are looking for and boss Roberto Martinez will have money to spend in the summer following the new investment in the club, resulting in the Merseysiders being linked to a host of new players.

Slimani is an Algeria international who has found the back of the net 22 times this season in just 34 matches, capturing the interest of Manchester United and Crystal Palace in the process.

Everton were apparently keen to land the 27-year-old last January but failed to offer enough money, although that looks like changing this summer.
