Liverpool target Youri Tielemans to leave Leicester City on a free transfer
Liverpool see themselves presented with a fantastic opportunity to secure the services of Youri Tielemans on a free transfer.
The Belgian midfielder, who was once a target for the Reds, has announced his departure from Leicester City after the club’s relegation to the EFL Championship. Youri Tielemans is an experienced campaigner in the Premier League with 151 appearances in the English top flight.
Announcing his decision to part ways with the Foxes via Instagram (h/t Liverpool ECHO), the former Anderlecht midfielder posted a video thanking the fans and the club for their support over his four-year stay at the East Midlands club.
Tielemans’ decision to leave Leicester City on a free transfer may not come as a surprise to many, considering his contract was set to expire in less than a month (Transfermarkt).
Will the Reds take the chance to get Tielemans?
However, it presents a significant opportunity for Liverpool to capitalize on his services without having to spend big on a transfer fee. The availability of Tielemans on a free transfer is a blessing in disguise for Liverpool, who have been targeting big-money midfield options this summer.
The opportunity to secure a player of his quality without breaking the bank is a dream scenario for the club’s management and also fans alike.
Tielemans has proven himself as a top-level midfielder during his time at Leicester City. His technical abilities, vision, and goal-scoring prowess make him an attractive prospect for Liverpool.
With the Reds aiming to strengthen their squad for the upcoming season, Tielemans could certainly prove to be an excellent addition to their midfield ranks.
