Out of all the players at Leicester City, midfielder Youri Tielemans looks to be the strongest candidate to move on this summer.

The talented 24-year-old, who arrived from Monaco in 2019, has gone on to cement himself as one of the Premier League’s most consistent central midfielders.

Best known for his technical ability, passing range and tenacious defending, the Belgium international certainly appears to be heading towards a move to one of Europe’s biggest clubs.

Youri Tielemans is being linked with a move to Real Madrid.

Speaking at the beginning of the year about the possibility of Tielemans moving on at the end of the season, Foxes’ boss Brendan Rodgers hinted a transfer could be on the cards.

“He is at an age and at a stage in his contract where he has to ensure he looks at every option,” Rodgers told Sky Sports.

“I would love it to be here at Leicester, that is natural, but I understand it’s a very short career.
