The 17 year old defensive midfielder is into his second season in the Anderlecht first team set-up and a regular in the Belgian Under 21 national team and apparently a player Brendan Rodgers is keen to land.

Tielemans became the youngest Belgian to play in the Champions League when he made his bow in the competition last October and Liverpool have sent scouts to monitor his progress of late.

German giants Borussia Dortmund are keen on Tielemans and saw a bid in excess of £4.5m turned down whilst Bayern Munich are also keeping tabs on the starlet.

Rodgers is developing a reputation for a willingness to trust to youth and brought in young talents Emre Can, Lazar Markovic and Divock Origi over the summer as he plans for the future.
