Belgian football journalist Kristof Terreur has been speaking on the latest Twitch stream from journalist Fabrizio Romano.
Terreur discussed the potential future of his fellow Belgian, Youri Tielemans, with his time at Leicester put under serious speculation.
It has been reported Liverpool have shown interest in the 24-year-old midfielder this summer amid Leicester’s hope to tie him down to a new deal.
The report from The Telegraph has suggested with two years remaining on his contract with the Foxes, Jurgen Klopp’s side believe it would take a huge fee to prise him away.
However, on the subject of a potential new contract for the midfielder, Terreur revealed the 24-year-old’s love for Leicester and how the club is progressing.
He said: “I think Leicester will be pushing to pull him over the line because it’s been the same as [Romelu] Lukaku. He’s very happy Leicester, Leicester have shown lots of ambition, he loves the training centre, he loves the area and he loves to work with Brendan Rodgers.
“So it will be up to the guarantees that Leicester are giving him and up to the finances, too.”
TIF Thoughts on Tielemans’ future…
The Belgian has proven to be a key part of Rodgers’ Leicester project and that proved to be the case in the FA Cup final triumph against Chelsea, which saw the 24-year-old score the winner.
However, with two years left on his deal, we think this will be a crucial summer for the future of the player at Leicester.
If the Belgian is not willing to extend his deal this summer, would it be best for Leicester to cash in on him whilst he still has more than just one year remaining on his contract?
If not – and Leicester look to offload him next summer with just one year left on his deal – then they will likely find the Belgian’s price to have taken a major hit.
