Summer 2022 transfers: Slimani back to the Premier League?

Islam Slimani could return to the English league from the next winter transfer window. Indeed, a new promoted from the English Premier League requests it. This is Nottingham Forest. Released from Sporting Portugal, he is studying the various offers he has received, before deciding on his future destination.

It’s a certainty, Islam Slimani will leave Sporting Portugal. He has to look for another club to bounce back. First, he will have to negotiate an amicable termination of contract with his resident club, with which he is under contract for another season.

“Super Slim” had joined the club from the Portuguese capital last January, but he could not shine. Despite a return phase far from expectations, due to his dispute with his coach Ruben Amorim, there is no lack of offers. Several clubs from different world championships are interested in the services of the Algerian international. Al-Hilal (Saudi Arabia) or Fenrbahçe (Turkey) came forward to offer the striker in question. At the latest news, a club from the English championship entered the race to hire him.

“Super Slim” back to the Premier League?

Nottingham Forest, since it is about him, checked the name of Islam Slimani as reinforcement. Returning to the Premier League after a long absence, the club in question could be a good opportunity for the player to relaunch his career. He could make his comeback in the English league. In 2016, he had a short experience with Leicester City.

According to the specialized Portuguese newspaper “Record”, the top scorer in the history of the national team is in the sights of the newly promoted Premier League. A club which does not meet the sporting ambitions of the player, of course, but which would allow him to always evolve in the high level.

But the site “Nottingham Forest News”, which took over the information published on “Record”, dismisses the possibility of seeing the native of Ain Benian put on the jersey of “Forest”. Author of a failed return phase with Sporting Portugal, his advanced age (34 years old) and his big salary could be against him.

While training with the national team, Slimani is focused on the next two games against Uganda and Tanzania. It is after these two important appointments that he should plan for his future. He will meet his agent to study the various offers he has received, before deciding on his future destination. But, obviously, he is still likely to stay in Europe, despite his advanced age.
