Liverpool ‘like’ 25-year-old Belgian midfielder whose contract expires in 2023 – report

Posted by

Liverpool’s hunt for a new midfielder will continue to gather headlines and we have once again been linked with a familiar name, alongside some other European giants.

As reported by Calcio Mercato: ‘Expiring in 2023 with Leicester, the 25-year-old Belgian midfielder will not renew his contract: Juventus, Real Madrid and Liverpool like him’.

It’s certainly not much to go on but, seeing as we have been repeatedly linked with Youri Tielemans in past years, there could be some truth in the rumours.

The Leicester City midfielder has had a long list of suitors for many years and if he is set to leave the Premier League club on a free transfer, there will be plenty of interested parties.

It’s never great to hear that we may have to compete with the likes of Real Madrid and Juventus but there’s certainly going to be a lot of appeal for the player to remain in this country.

With FSG probably having to finance a few other midfield options this summer for some potentially large figures, then this could work as a cheaper option for us in terms of transfer fees.

The wages are unlikely to be low on a free deal though and the Belgian with 19 goals and 19 assists in his English league career is likely to demand a decent wage for himself.

We’ll have to wait and see what happens with this one but it’s unlikely we can break the bank on multiple targets in the same window.
