Leicester City's English striker Jamie Vardy waves at the final whistle during the English FA Cup third round replay football match between Leicester City and Fleetwood Town at King Power Stadium in Leicester, central England on 16 January 2018.

The 2015-16 Premier League champions have been linked with several players this month.

Newcastle have been handed a blow in their pursuit of Leicester City striker Islam Slimani, with Watford now believed to be in a better position to complete the signing.

"For Slimani, I can not give all the ties about an individual player, I repeat, that since the beginning, that we have a lot of strikers".

The Frenchman, who placed the huge price tag on Mahrez this week, said: "He is enjoying playing for Leicester with his team-mates".


The 29-year-old, Leicester's £29million-record signing, has only started a Premier League game since September, and could be allowed to leave on loan till the end of the campaign.

"I repeat, that since the beginning, that we have a lot of strikers".

"We will see if some player can win some game time at other clubs".

'It is always the same thing, my response is the same. "I think we work normally in this transfer window and it's important to keep our focus about our transfer window. We have to discuss with these players".

Signing the Leicester winger is the most expensive option the club are considering at the moment, but with Roma set to receive funds, the winger has again emerged as a viable target.
