Home FIVE strikers to get West Ham firing again next season Islam Slimani

Islam Slimani

The Sporting Lisbon striker is currently at the World Cup with Algeria and looked impressive, finding the net and providing an assist in their 4-2 victory over South Korea. However, after the signing of John Pantsil, we should know that the World Cup is not always the most accurate showcase for a footballer’s ability. Slimani’s statistics at domestic level are unremarkable (8 goals in 26 games) and his price is rumoured to be around the £6m mark with Stoke, Newcastle, Marseille and Trabzonspor also interested. For me, his game is too similar to Andy Carroll’s to work in unison; he might be a very good replacement but at the price being demanded, I think it’s too much effort for a back-up striker.
