Leicester City are one of the clubs interested in acquiring Youri Tielemans’ services on a permanent transfer.
A Saturday report from Het Laatste Nieuws has a headline reading ‘Leicester want a breakthrough over Tielemans next week’.
Within the story, it’s explained the Foxes are making ‘slow, but steady progress’ in their efforts to land the AS Monaco owned player and have been in close contact with the Ligue 1 side.
When the Foxes signed the midfielder in January, they allowed Adrien Silva to join the French club on a temporary deal.
Rodgers’ side were hoping to find an agreement for the 22-year-old earlier and allow Silva to move in the opposite direction as part of the deal.
There is still no agreement between the two clubs for the Belgium international, but HLN claims the Premier League club want to ‘force a breakthrough’ in Tielemans’ case next week.
Manchester United are also credited with an interest in the Monaco owned player, yet they will only consider making an approach if Paul Pogba leaves Old Trafford.
Tottenham Hotspur were also believed to be after Tielemans, although he’s no longer a priority target for them.
Both United and Spurs have been linked for years and there doesn’t appear anything concrete in recent claims.
Leicester feel they are in ‘pole position’ to land the Belgian and to complete the deal, they need to pay a club-record fee of €45m to the French club.
