Tielemans has been linked with a move to Liverpool and Man United and has given an update on his future following talks with Leicester over a new contract.

Youri Tielemans says he is “open to everything” amid transfer interest from Liverpool and Manchester United.

The 24-year-old picked up the club’s Player of the Year award for last season and scored a thunderous goal in the FA Cup final which saw Leicester City lift the famous trophy in May.

His performances affirmed his standing as one of the Premier League’s best midfielders, able to do a bit of everything for manager Brendan Rodgers.

But Tielemans’ showings have not gone unnoticed despite a lack of Champions League football in the East Midlands. Liverpool and United are said to have been interested during the summer window.

With two years remaining on his deal, Leicester are keen to tie the Belgium international down with an improved deal to either keep him at the King Power Stadium or receive a large sum for his signature- something he (Tielemans) was asked to give an update. regarding.

He revealed, “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.”

Asked by the interviewer if that meant keeping his options open, he clarified: “Exactly.”

Having played every minute for Leicester so far this term, Tielemans’ importance to Rodgers’ side cannot be understated, providing crucial creativity.

The ex-Anderlecht star’s 37 direct goal contributions in 113 appearances have eased the burden on James Maddison but his partnership with fellow central man Wilfred Ndidi has been lauded as one of the top-flight’s best midfield duos.

Although a gifted player on the pitch, his boss recently described him as a “top-class professional.”

“I hope we can have him for longer. Jon [Rudkin, the Foxes’ director of football] is meeting with his representatives,” Rodgers stated before transfer deadline day.

“He is a top-class professional, a great guy and someone I love working with. He is very focused on his football and doesn’t get sidetracked at all. As I have said before, I will give him everything to help him continuously. improve and he will continue to give us everything too”.

The Welshman added: “For me and Youri, it just continues – our relationship. Hopefully, we can resolve something in the future.”
