Barcelona considering move for Youri Tielemans

Barcelona have reportedly expressed an interest in making an audacious move for Leicester City playmaker Youri Tielemans in the January transfer window.

Tielemans possesses a contract until the end of the season, though, and the midfielder is not expected to sign an extension with the Foxes.

Arsenal and Manchester United have both been credited with an interest in the Belgium international, who has made 175 appearances for Leicester City since his move from Monaco.

However, according to Fichajes, Barcelona are also credited with an interest, with the La Liga giants considering making a move during the mid-season transfer window.

As it stands, the Catalan outfit would be able to open contract talks with the 25-year-old in January, but they would have to wait until the end of the season to lure him on a free transfer.

The Catalan side could attempt to agree a fee with Leicester in the winter window, although it is unclear whether the Foxes would be prepared to let him leave in the middle of the campaign.

Tielemans has once again been one of the Foxes’ standout performers in an impressive season, contributing three goals and one assist in 17 appearances in all competitions.
