Youri Tielemans will have his medical at Leicester City ahead of a permanent transfer from AS Monaco this weekend.
According to claims from John Percy of The Telegraph via Twitter, the midfielder will join the club for a fee worth £40 million, meaning that he is set to become the Foxes’ most expensive ever signing.

Tielemans joined Leicester last season during the January transfer window under Claude Puel.
Despite impressing under the Frenchman, the Belgium international blossomed under the tutelage of Brendan Rodgers, and it seems the Northern Irishman will make him his third summer signing.
Leicester have already tied up deals for James Justin and Ayoze Perez, and the arriving duo are set to be joined by Tielemans in a huge £40 million deal.
The player will now undergo his medical, where no mishaps are expected to occur.
