Leicester City star Youri Tielemans has suggested that he wants to “keep as many options as [he] can open” amid his transfer links to Liverpool.
The Belgium international joined Leicester on a permanent deal in 2019 after he enjoyed a successful initial loan spell.
The midfielder has continued to shine for the Foxes over the past couple of seasons. He scored a superb winning goal in the FA Cup final last season as his side beat Chelsea.
Tielemans has been linked with a move to Liverpool of late.
Speaking last month, Jamie Redknapp called for his former side to make a move for Tielemans:
“Liverpool have to get a midfield player in. That’s a major blow, losing Wijnaldum, and I don’t think they’ve got the capability of actually replacing him right now,” Redknapp said.
“Who you get is incredibly difficult: I always look at Liverpool as buying the best players. I would go for [Youri] Tielemans – I would do everything in my power to get him into the club.”
Tielemans’ current deal with Leicester City expires in 2023. They are keen for their player to sign a new deal. The 24-year-old has told Sky Sports that he is “open to everything”:
“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.
“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.”
