The report has claimed that Villa are looking to secure the services of the Algeria international striker on a loan deal.
Fernando Llorente speculation
Slimani is not the only striker that both Tottenham and Villa are reportedly competing against each other this month.
Slimani, who has been at Leicester since 2016, has made 11 starts and two substitute appearances in Ligue 1 for AS Monaco so far this season, scoring seven goals and providing seven assists in the process, according to WhoScored.
Tottenham Hotspur or Aston Villa?
With Villa fighting for survival and Tottenham aiming to finish in the top four of the Premier League and also in the Champions League knockout stages, Spurs would be a more appealing team to Slimani, but Leicester may not want him to go to Jose Mourinho’s side, as the Foxes are also in the race for the top-four.
