'He's gone then': Some fans worried their £65m man is going to leave after links with Liverpool
Some Leicester City fans have been left very concerned with what Youri Tielemans has said amid links with Liverpool.
On the way out?
The Belgian midfielder has now come out and stated that his future at Leicester is far from certain.
The Telegraph have reported how Liverpool are keen to snap up the midfielder is he does become available.
And his latest comments may well have set pulses racing at Anfield.
“There’s no update really. I’m open to everything. The transfer market has just closed, but I want to keep as many options as I can open,” he said to Sky Sports.
“As long as I’m here I will give everything for the club. I’ve already done so, but I will do so even more. The contract situation is just something that is going on in football, it’s a normal situation.
“There are talks going on – I’m not saying I’m going to sign, I’m not saying I’m not going to sign. We will see.”
Tielemans words certainly don’t give the indication that he is set to staying at the King Power Stadium.
And many Foxes fans are worried that they could lose one of their star men now, after he was valued at £65 million this summer (Fabrizio Romano).
If Liverpool were the team to sign Tielemans he could be an appealing addition to their squad.
The midfielder is blessed with great technical ability and his energy makes him an ideal fit for Jurgen Klopp’s system.
With his contractual situation not sorted, his price tag could also drop next summer – and that could play right into Liverpool’s hands, given that they don’t have the lavish budgets of some of their title rivals.
