Tottenham fans react as club reportedly rivalling Arsenal for £40m-rated midfielder

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for AS Monaco midfielder Youri Tielemans this summer, as he continues to shine on loan at Leicester City – and Spurs fans are desperate to see him signed.

The Daily Star claim 21-year-old Tielemans is worth a whopping £40million, and is being tracked by Spurs as well as Arsenal and Manchester United ahead of the summer window.

The Belgium international, who is still very young given that he has been playing at the top level for years, has scored three goals and laid on five assists in just 11 Premier League appearances since joining Leicester in January.

Tielemans was frozen out by Leonardo Jardim last season at Monaco, despite joining the club from RSC Anderlecht in the summer of 2017. Thierry Henry’s short stint saw the midfielder become captain at the French club.

But Henry’s sacking saw Jardim return, and Tielemans was instantly ostracised again. The midfielder is highly rated, and already has an enormous 261 appearances for Anderlecht, Monaco and Leicester.

Tottenham fans have reacted on Twitter to the news that their club are in the running to land midfielder Tielemans’ signature. Many are desperate to see the Belgian sign on at Spurs, with the club in need of replacing Mousa Dembele.
