Leicester City Manager Claudio Ranieri Insists Islam Slimani Is Not For Sale

share on:

Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri has ruled out a January sale for Islam Slimani, claiming that reports linking the striker with a move away are just speculations.

Islam Slimani is said to have been targeted by Chinese Super League club Tianjin Quanjian, who were willing to offer him wages of £400,000 a week.

Ranieri has no intention of allowing the six-goal striker to leave the King Power Stadium this month, however, but he could make a move for Middlesbrough ace Gaston Ramirez after it was revealed that he has handed in a transfer request.

“Slimani is not for sale. It is speculation,” he told reporters. “Ramirez? I don’t confirm anything. You know I don’t speak about speculation. In six days you will know everything.”
