According to CBS Sports reporter Ben Jacobs, Liverpool may look to submit a “late window bid” for Leicester midfielder Youri Tielemans.
The Belgian has been heavily linked with a switch to Arsenal this summer and, while Jacobs says the Gunners remain the player’s preferred destination, an offer from the Reds can’t be ruled out:
The most recent setback to Naby Keita may force Jurgen Klopp’s side to make a move in the transfer market, and the fact that Tielemans is available so cheaply does make him a viable target.
The Foxes may only hold out for a transfer fee between £25 million and £30 million as the 25-year-old has less than a year left on his contract at the King Power Stadium.
Tielemans is reported to prioritize moving to a team with Champions League football so he may snub a transfer to Arsenal if Liverpool enter the race.
However, Jacobs is merely speculating at this point about the Reds’ interest in the player. But we’ll have to wait and see if more concrete reports regarding a potential approach for the Belgian international emerge.
