Liverpool transfer news: Juventus reportedly join Reds in race for £70m star who's just been asked about Reds transfer rumours

Leicester City’s hopes of holding onto Youri Tielemans may have been dealt a further blow, with the news from Italian outlet Calciomercato who claim that Juventus want the Liverpool transfer target.

Tielemans has already been heavily linked with a potential move in this window.

The Reds reportedly want the Belgian. And it was recently suggested that the Foxes have set a £70 million asking price for the 24-year-old.

Another report previously claimed that Leicester had opened contract talks with him.

According to Calciomercato, Juve want the FA Cup winner. It is noted that the Old Lady have been following Tielemans since he was at Anderlecht.

Calciomercato claims Juve have been in contact with his representatives. They are prepared to put an £83,000-a-week deal on the table.

It is not difficult to see why the Reds may want Tielemans. Jurgen Klopp’s side have lost Georginio Wijnaldum.

It looks imperative that they bolster their midfield options. And Tielemans has been outstanding during his time at the King Power Stadium.

Tielemans was asked about links with Liverpool this week. He played down the talk for the time-being.

But there are plenty of fans keen on seeing him join. Several supporters raved about his Euro 2020 display as Belgium beat Russia.

So it would be a blow if Juventus landed his signature.

He has proved that he is more than good enough for the Premier League. And at 24, he should only get better from here.

Admittedly, the asking price is a concern. Liverpool have not tended to be huge spenders in the last couple of years.

But if they are very keen on him, perhaps the time is right to step up their interest.
