Islam Slimani has left Leicester City for Monaco on a season-long loan.
The player was signed almost as a statement of intent after the King Power Stadium team won the Premier League.
The Algerian forward was unable to dislodge the ever-present Jamie Vardy.
Leonardo Jardim’s Monaco team are a team attempting to recover from a disaster of a season. They went from 2nd place to fighting relegation in the space of twelve months.
Although that may have had plenty to do with selling several world-class stars and not bringing in the same level of replacements.
Slimani said of his latest move:
“I am very happy to be involved with Monaco.”
“A big club that aims to fight for the first places in the championship and to qualify for European competitions.”
“I will give everything to help the club achieve its goals.”
