Liverpool have been linked with Belgium international midfielder Youri Tielemans in recent weeks.
Meanwhile, Graeme Bailey has told the latest Talking Transfers podcast episode that Liverpool love Tielemans.
Liverpool are in dire need of bolstering their midfield ranks this summer amid ageing legs and expiring contracts.
Meanwhile, Tielemans’ time at Leicester is coming to an end, and sadly it’s not on a high note.
The 26-year-old was unable to help the Foxes stay up in the Premier League at the end of a difficult season.
In addition, Tielemans’ contract is up in the summer, and the player himself has now confirmed he is indeed leaving.
The Belgian took to Instagram with a heartfelt post for the club’s fans.
It’s a shame that Tielemans’ time at Leicester is ending on such a low note, considering all he has done for the club.
He helped the Foxes win the FA Cup in 2021 by scoring an outstanding long-range winner against Chelsea.
Later on that year, Brendan Rodgers labelled Tielemans “one of Europe’s best midfielders”.
Liverpool have twice struck gold with players from relegated clubs in recent years.
Georginio Wijnaldum shone after joining from Newcastle, while former Hull ace Andrew Robertson remains a key player at Anfield.
With that in mind, Liverpool should certainly look to make a move for Tielemans.
If Jurgen Klopp can get him back to his best, what a bargain he would be.
