Youri Tielemans leaves his summer options open

Once again finding the net in Leicester’s 3-0 win over Arsenal on Sunday, playmaker Youri Tielemans has made quite the impression following his loan move from Monaco back in January.

Playing a vital part in Brendan Rodgers’ youthful revolution at the King Power, the 21-year-old is reportedly attracting interest from some of the Premier League’s elite.

Heavily linked with a potential move to the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham, Tielemans has remained coy about where he could be playing his football next season.


Tielemans to make a permanent Premier League switch this summer?

Since making the switch for Ligue 1 earlier in the season, the Belgian international has picked up three goals and four assists in his 11 appearances and is quickly becoming a fan favourite in Leicestershire.

With almost every top-four contender expected to spend big this summer, it is heavily believed that some of the Premier League’s elite will be looking to start a bidding war for the youngster.

Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws claim that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen on the former Anderlecht star, who is rated at £40million by his club.

Along with Manchester United looking to bolster their options for next year, Unai Emery has made it no secret that he is also desperate to bring another midfielder to the Emirates.

Speaking to the Leicester Mercury after their 3-0 win over the Gunners on Sunday, Tielemans discussed his impressive start to life in England but is keeping quiet on where he will be playing his football next campaign.

Sadly for Leicester fans, the 21-year-old also confirmed that the Foxes do not have an option buy the midfield starlet at the end of the season.

“I am feeling the love of the fans,”

“After I scored I heard them sing my name and chant ‘sign him up’ so it is fantastic to play in this atmosphere.

“I hope it will be the same in the last two games and then we will see.

“I will give the same answer, I will see at the end of the season.

“I am just enjoying every day here and we will see what happens in the summer, after these next two games.

“All I can say is I am doing my very best to play at a high level and I will keep on going until the end of the season and finish these last two games well and then we will see.

“There is no option to buy. Like I said, we will see.”

While the Foxes will appear to face stiff competition from some of the Premier League elite this summer, Rodgers’ side have reportedly already opened up discussions with Monaco over a permanent move.

The Daily Mail are reporting that Leicester have made initial contact with the French outfit and are hoping to use Adrien Silva, who went the other way in January, as part of the deal.
