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.
We are literally going to be linked with just about everyone this summer.
Ive said Tielemans for months. Him and N'Dombele together would be a dream CM for us.

This would be a great signing . This is the sort of quality we need .
A) another club will probably get him. They will offer more wages or a better price.
B) why didn't we just go for him in January, we need to stop sleeping on these transfers.
