Speaking to Sky Sports, Leicester City’s Youri Tielemans revealed he was open to exploring all the options which present themselves in the near future.
The Belgium international was linked with Liverpool for a while during the summer transfer window, and Real Madrid were later credited with interest as well. According to Fabrizio Romano, ‘many clubs’ are interested in signing him at the end of this season, when his contract with the Foxes will enter its final year.
The situation would presumably change if the 24-year-old midfielder was to sign a new contract between now and then, but as of yet, there is no such offer on his table.
Tielemans has so far played a total of 113 matches for Brendan Rodgers’ side since arriving from AS Monaco in 2019, scoring 18 goals and providing 19 assists. His arguably most notable contribution was the superb winner he netted in the FA Cup final against Chelsea last term.
“There’s no update really. I’m open to everything. The transfer market has just closed, but I want to keep as many options as I can open,” he said.
“As long as I’m here I will give everything for the club. I’ve already done so, but I will do so even more. The contract situation is just something that is going on in football, it’s a normal situation.
“There are talks going on – I’m not saying I’m going to sign, I’m not saying I’m not going to sign. We will see.”
