Manchester United have made an enquiry about signing Leicester City striker Islam Slimani on loan until the end of the season, according to the Daily Mail.
The Algerian international has been on loan at Monaco this campaign, scoring seven goals in 14 appearances, but he could be recalled in January after being left on the bench by the Ligue One side in recent weeks.
However, the Mail report that Leicester would charge a £4m loan fee if United do step up their interest in Slimani before the January transfer window closes.
With Marcus Rashford out injured, and having not replaced Romelu Lukaku or Alexis Sanchez in the summer, the Red Devils are on the lookout for new forwards before deadline day next week.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hinted that the club are indeed working on bringing in two new players:
“We’re still working on one or two things so let’s see if the club get it over the line.”
Whether either of them turns out to be Slimani, following United’s enquiry, it remains to be seen.
