Liverpool are interested in signing Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans. The Belgium international has been a star performer for Leicester City since joining from AS Monaco in 2019.
He has played 135 Premier League games for the Foxes so far, registering 21 goals and 19 assists. Tielemans helped Leicester claim one FA Cup and one FA Community Shield. He won the Leicester City Player of the Season accolade in 2020-21.
The Belgium international is in the final year of his contract at the King Power Stadium. He could leave the Foxes on a cut-price deal during the January window. Arsenal are also monitoring his situation at the King Power Stadium.
Signing a new midfielder will be a top priority for Jurgen Klopp during the upcoming transfer window. Almost all of the Reds’ senior midfielders have suffered injuries during the opening months of the season. Liverpool signed Arthur Melo on loan from Juventus during the summer window but he is currently facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines with an injury.
Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham and RB Leipzig’s Konrad Laimer are other midfielders linked with a move to Anfield in recent months.
