Leicester City are believed to be upping their efforts to get a new contract boxed off for star midfielder Youri Tielemans.
That’s according to Daily Mail journalist Tom Collomosse, via MSN, who cites Liverpool’s interest as a reason for Brendan Rodgers’ eagerness to get a deal arranged.
The above report states Tielemans is currently on holiday, but Leicester City will be looking to start contract talks as soon as he returns.
Belgian news outlet Het Nieuwsblad reported back in May that Liverpool are very interested in the player and he’d be keen on a move to Anfield, effectively replacing Gini Wijnaldum.
With 237 appearances under his belt from the last five seasons at Anfield, replacing the ever-present Dutchman will be no easy task, should the Reds look to do so this summer.
Tielemans is an exciting potential target, and if the rumours are to be believed, Jurgen Klopp and co. are certainly looking in the right areas for a suitable replacement.
