'It's true': Spurs are considering making move to sign 'incredible' PL star, Romano claims

Fabrizio Romano has provided an update on Tottenham Hotspur’s reported interest in Youri Tielemans.

The transfer guru was speaking on the latest episode of his Here We Go podcast.

The Leicester midfielder is out of contract in 2023 and is reportedly eager to find a new club this summer.

As well as Tottenham, north London rivals Arsenal have apparently been eyeing Tielemans for a number of months.

“They are exploring”

Romano has claimed that the Belgium international will “100 percent” leave the King Power Stadium this season.

Although Spurs are not actively speaking with Tielemans or Leicester, they are exploring the situation, he added.

Romano also claimed much rests on whether Tottenham quality for the Champions League or not.

However, Spurs will have competition from “five, six clubs” for the “fantastic” midfielder.

“Tielemans is going to leave Leicester at the end of the season,” said Romano.

“100 percent, many clubs interested, Tottenham included, but still nothing closed.

“Tottenham are not negotiating with Leicester at the moment, or negotiating with Tielemans.

“They are exploring the situation.

“But for them it’s really important to know if they will play Champions League football or not.

“So this is why for Tielemans it’ll take a few weeks before we have an update, but it’s true.

“He’s a player on Tottenham’s radar but there are, trust me, five, six clubs in competition for Tielemans.

“He’s a fantastic player and a good opportunity on the market so this is why it’s still an open race.”

Former Tottenham defender Michael Dawson described Tielemans as “an incredible talent” on Sky Sports News (23/10/21, 12:59pm).

Tielemans would certainly be a great shout for Spurs, and with just one year before his contract expires, he might not even be too expensive.
