Leicester City striker Islam Slimani is prepared to take a pay cut to push through a permanent move away from the King Power Stadium this summer.
The 30-year-old has struggled at the club since moving from Sporting Lisbon back in 2016 for a club-record £29m.
The Algerian has featured in just 35 league games for the Foxes, scoring on eight occasions.
Slimani has been sent out on loan to Newcastle United and Fenerbahce in recent years, however, the powerful forward has continued to struggle.
The striker is expected to return to Leicester in the summer following his poor loan spell in Turkey and seek a move away.
And according to Le Buteur, relayed in an article by Sport Witness, Slimani is willing to take a pay cut to re-join Sporting Lisbon, who are eager to bring the player back to Portugal.
The report goes on to suggest that a deal could be agreed by July 1, the date when the Portuguese transfer window opens.
