Liverpool target Youri Tielemans
All summer we’ve been linked with a multitude of midfielders.
The Reds have reportedly been in for Saul Niguez and Florian Neuhaus.
One Premier League midfielder keeps cropping up as a potential signing.
Voetbal24 reported recently that Liverpool want to sign Youri Tielemans and the Belgian is desperate for the move.
The Reds would allegedly have to splash out close to £64m to bring him to Anfield.
Leicester offer Youri Tielemans new contract
The Belgian is highly rated by The Foxes.
According to The Telegraph, Leicester City have offered Youri Tielemans a bumper new contract.
The King Power side are said to be keen on keeping him with the club to maintain their progress.
The report states that the Premier League side are confident that the Belgian will sign the new deal.
What RTK has to say
This never looked to be a likely signing.
The finances involved were always out of FSG’s reach.
The Reds work on a sell-to-buy budget, we can’t raise enough money to sign Youri Tielemans whilst also investing in the front three.
Fingers crossed we return for him in the future, he’s a special midfielder.
