Islam Slimani’s time in Turkey is getting worse and worse, as the forward has now been told he has no place in Fenerbahce’s team, and has been ordered to find himself a new club.
The striker, who is currently on loan from Leicester City, has struggled to have any meaningful impact with the Süper Lig club this season, scoring just one league goal in 15 appearances.
An early return to King Power Stadium in January was expected, but it never came, and the 30-year-old now has to wait until the end of the season to get his career back on track.
According to Fotospor, who bring us the news about him being told to find himself a new club, claim the former Sporting CP star has already contacted the Portuguese club about a return.
The Turkish outlet even go as far as stating the two parties have reached ‘an agreement in principle’, meaning all that needs to be sorted now is a transfer fee with Leicester.
Contracted with the Foxes until 2021, Slimani’s future will be in Brendan Rodgers’ hands in the summer as the former Liverpool manager could very well want to use the Algeria international next season.
It seems unlikely, but you never know.
