The Foxes are hoping to tie down the Belgian midfielder to a new contract at the King Power Stadium as the Reds and Manchester United circle.
Despite being under contract until 2023 in the Midlands, the 24-year-old has been subject to intense speculation over where his future may lie.
Twitter: Tielemans “I’m not saying I will sign, and I’m not saying I won’t sign.”

The 44-times capped Belgium international admitted: “I want to keep as many options as I can open.”

Valued at £49.5million (Transfermarkt), the fee to sign Tielemans could begin to lessen as the contract end approaches ever nearer.
Previously mooted at around £64million to prize the Belgian away, next summer that fee could fall into a far more affordable bracket.
Full of quality and already a proven elite performer at the top level, Reds’ boss Jurgen Klopp would no doubt jump at the chance to add Tielemans to the squad.
