La Liga

Spurs handed major boost as prolific Atletico Madrid target favours White Hart Lane move


Leicester City may have pipped Tottenham Hotspur to the Premier League title, much to the chagrin of the Spurs fans in the Transfer Tavern. 

However, the North London outfit could yet beat the Foxes to the punch in yet another race between the two.

Sporting Lisbon striker Islam Slimani has been touted as a potential target for the title winning Foxes as they bid to draft in reinforcements for the Champions League next season.

Portuguese outlet O Jogo claims the Algerian marksman, who has notched an impressive 27 goals this season, showed signs he would be leaving the capital during the last game of the season.

He reportedly gave indications he could be applauding the Sporting fans for the last time at the final whistle following the 4-0 rout away at Braga.

It is claimed in the report that while La Liga giants Atletico Madrid are also chasing him, the striker would prefer a move to White Hart Lane.

Though Harry Kane is undoubtedly the star man for Spurs, the options in the centre-forward berth after him look a little light.

With an important campaign in the Champions League on the horizon, manager Mauricio Pochettino will surely be looking to add another striker to his cause.

How much of a coup would Slimani be for either Leicester or Spurs?
