Former Premier League defender Michael Dawson believes Leicester City ‘will sell’ Youri Tielemans if the right offer comes in. 

Liverpool have been heavily linked with a move for the midfielder in recent months following the departure of Gini Wijnaldum. 

The 24-year-old has further fuelled the fire by admitting he is ‘keeping options open’ regarding his future. 

Speaking on Sky Sports News (12:59pm, October 23, 2021), Dawson claimed that Leicester could be forced to allow their Belgian star to leave.

If he really wants to stay, they will chuck the money at him. If the price is right, they will sell. If he wants to stay, he can stay. They will give him big money, they have big money. They will have to break the bank. He is an incredible talent, incredible.

Previous reports have claimed that the Foxes will demand between €70-80million (£59-67million) for the 47-cap ace. 

This season Tielemans has scored twice and registered three assists in 13 appearances across all competitions – earning an impressive 7.25 Sofascore rating from eight Premier League outings.

Valued at £49.50million and under contract at the King Power Stadium until 2023 (Transfermarkt), that mooted asking price will soon be falling without a new contract on the horizon. 

Perhaps a more progressive-minded midfielder than many of the current options currently available to Jurgen Klopp, Tielemans would be a worthwhile addition to the Reds’ squad. 

With an eye for the spectacular, the Belgian would also offer goals from deep – something that has been lacking at times at Anfield. 

Should Liverpool Sign Youri Tielemans?

Yes

No
