Slimani will be the seventh player to be signed into Claudio Raneiri's team

New Delhi: With the summer transfer deadline ahead, Premier League champion Leicester City is all set to sign Sporting Lisbon's forward Islam Slimani into their squad for £29.7 million. 
 
The Algerian player scored 27 goals in 33 league game appearances last season as Sporting Lisbon finished second on the table behind Benfica. If signed, the Algerian player will link up with his national teammate Riya Mahrez at Leicester City. 
 
Slimani will be the seventh player to be signed into Claudio Raneiri's team. 
 
Slimani has been chased by the Foxes for most of the summer transfer season, but uncertainty in the offer had delayed the official price tag for the player.
