Wolves boss Nuno Esoirito Santo will surely be looking to add more of a physical presence to his attacking department at Molineux this summer, in an effort to add more variety to his striking options.

With this in mind, the Portuguese should attempt to sign Leicester's Islam Slimani, with the Algerian facing an uncertain future at the King Power Stadium.

The 30-year-old joined the Foxes from Sporting Lisbon in the summer of 2016, for a fee believed to be worth in the region of £29 million, but he has struggled to establish himself in the east Midlands.

That isn't to say that Slimani doesn't still have a lot to offer at the very highest level, though, and it could be argued that he has not been given ample opportunity to prove his worth for Leicester.

Standing at 6ft 2in tall, the 58-capped Algeria international is incredibly strong in the air, and is very comfortable when playing with his back to goal, meaning that he could act as a fantastic focal point for Wolves to build their attacks through.

The 30-year-old is also quick along the ground, though, and possesses a threat in behind the opposition's defence.

Slimani has scored 117 goals in 280 career appearances - a tally that serves as evidence of his cool and composed nature in front of goal.

He is still under contract with Leicester until the summer of 2021, so it is unclear how much the Foxes would consider selling him for, but Wolves should test their resolves nevertheless.
