Youri Tielemans is the latest star to be subject to Liverpool’s interest, according to LiverpoolEcho.

The 25-year-old’s contract at Leicester City is expiring at the end of June and it seems highly unlikely that a contract extension will be penned.

Liverpool, therefore, are eyeing up a free transfer for the Belgium international.

Arsenal, Manchester United and Barcelona are also reported to be in the running to secure his signature so the deal will be far from simple to complete.

Since arriving in 2019, Tielemans has been a crucial player for his club and has scored four goals in all competitions this term, but it is the other layers to his game that make him so

The Belgian arrived from French club and has represented the Foxes on 187 occasions, with 28 goals and 25 assists to his name.

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has pleaded Tielemans to stay put and is hopeful that an agreement will be reached before the end of the 22/23 term.

Jurgen Klopp is in dire need of midfield reinforcements given their injury-prone squad and Tielemans would be a great fit.

His availability of late has been a problem, though, as he was not involved in Leicester’s 1-0 loss to Southampton as he was ruled out with an ankle injury.

It is expected that Tielemans will be out of action until after the international break, but he has showcased his talent since his arrival in England and Klopp is a keen admirer.

The Merseyside club have been keeping tabs on Jude Bellingham but given the rocketing asking price, looking for a budget alternative in the name of Tielemans would be clever business.
