There has been some talk about Tielemans potentially leaving the King Power, with Liverpool said to be interested in his signature.
Other clubs looking at the 24-year-old comes as no surprise after the season he has just had. He proved influential in the middle of the park for Leicester, averaging 1.3 key passes and three long balls per league game, two of the highest averages in Brendan Rodgers’ squad (via WhoScored).
Do Leicester have the best midfield in the PL?
Probably City or Chelsea
Stewart has warned potential suitors, though, that they could be looking at anything between £70m and £100m for the Foxes’ FA Cup final hero.
“Would Liverpool do that [splash the cash]? You’re talking 70 to 100 million I think for Tielemans,” the ex-Reds player said.
With Gini Wijnaldum departing for Paris Saint-Germain, you would expect Jurgen Klopp to dip into the transfer market for a replacement.
For £70m+, however, it is hard to imagine Liverpool signing Tielemans. Like most clubs, they have had to cut back on their spending, with the Merseyside outfit forced to pull out of a deal for Chelsea’s Timo Werner last year, something Klopp has publicly spoken about.
