On an 18-month contract from Leicester City that will run until June 2022, Lyon agreed to terms with Islam Slimani.

Following the departure of Moussa Dembele to Atletico Madrid on an initial loan, the Ligue 1 club transferred to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations champion, with an option to purchase.

On a free transfer, Slimani joins Rudi Garcia’s side, having played just 19 minutes of Premier League football in this campaign for Leicester City.

The 32-year-old is expected to raise the attacking power of Lyon, which already has Karl Toko Ekambi of Cameroon, Tino Kadewere of Zimbabwe and Maxwel Cornet of the Ivory Coast.

Slimani joined the Foxes from Sporting CP back in August 2016 and he has made 47 outings in all competitions.

The Algeria forward endured loan spells at Newcastle United, Fenerbahce, and most recently Monaco during his tenure at the King Power Stadium, where he contributed nine goals and seven assists during the 2019-20 Ligue 1 season.
