Monaco are keen on a permanent move for Leicester loanee Adrien Silva this summer, in a deal which could help the Foxes sign Youri Tielemans for a reduced fee.
Both Silva and Tielemans have impressed for their new sides following the loan swap deal agreed between the two clubs in January, and according to Sport Witness via France Football, Monaco are interested in signing the Portuguese midfielder permanently.
Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has previously revealed he would like to make Tielemans’ stay at the King Power stadium a permanent one, with a figure of around €40million said to be the Ligue 1 side’s asking price.
However, amid Monaco’s interest in Silva, the Foxes will almost certainly look to include the Portugal international in any deal for Tielemans, which could lower the asking price.
Both the Belgium international and Silva have featured nine times for their respective sides following the loan, with Tielemans scoring two and assisting four during that time.
Tielemans' Leicester career thus far.
