Youri Tielemans has reiterated his desire to extend his stay with Leicester City, amid rumours of interest from Manchester United and Tottenham.
As reported by Sky Sports News, Tielemans talked up the chances of joining the Foxes at the end of the season.
I do not know what is going to happen this summer. I feel really good here, but I have to see the other options too. That is normal, and I do not have to rush myself. We are now in April and we will see over the next months.
At Leicester, I can be part of something great. They will have a new training ground, the stadium will be much better than it is now with more fans coming over. So it can be something great for the future.
The Belgian midfielder, currently on loan from Ligue 1 side AS Monaco, has taken to the Premier League with ease.
He joined in a deal that saw Adrien Silva head to the French league, something that could help Leicester in the hopes of securing a permanent deal.
Despite only joining in January, Tielemans has been one of Leicester’s star performers in recent weeks.
That has not gone unnoticed, with long-term admirers Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur still believed to be monitoring the player.
Brendan Rodgers has talked up the chances of the Belgian staying at the club beyond the summer, in a deal that could set the club back a cool £40 million.
Why Tielemans could be an excellent signing for Leicester
He’s already impressed in the Premier League, but with time he will only get better. He boasts huge potential, something Leicester will want to take advantage of.
Leicester have ambitions to get back in Europe and Tielemans certainly has experience on that front. These are the sorts of players that the club will want to be targetting.
Potential for big profit
While they will not be thinking about this now, the club could make a big profit on the £40 million that it looks like they’ll have to spend to get him in.
Rodgers is already a fan
Brendan Rodgers has already hailed the midfielder’s impact at the club during his short spell in England. He could be key as the new Foxes boss looks to put his personal stamp on the squad.
