Liverpool set to finally seal deal for £120,000 per-week star for €40m after holding talks over personal terms

Liverpool are interested in signing Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans and are said to be willing to offer €40m to sign the Belgian after talks last summer over personal terms that were no problem for the Reds.

The 24-year-old was a target in the summer for the Reds but nothing materialized and he stayed at the King Power Stadium as Liverpool failed to sign a replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum.

It’s a decision that Jurgen Klopp has been forced to defend countless times in his press, and not many believe the German, made the right choice.

Gini was such an important cog in a well-oiled Liverpool side that won the Premier League title with 99 points after over 30 years of wait.

Liverpool needs a new midfielder.

With Thiago ageing and injury-prone, Naby Keita is gifted but his contract has less than 18 months remaining, and with injuries hampering his time at Anfield he is yet to prove himself while Jordan Henderson’s levels have dipped tremendously since his contract renewal.

El Nacional reports that Liverpool are preparing a €40million bid for Youri Tielamans but the report states that Real Madrid are also interested and Leicester would prefer to sell to a club outside the Premier League for obvious reasons.

Liverpool reportedly held talks to sign the ace in the summer but the Foxes managed to cling onto the £120,000 per week star.

The Belgian international joined the foxes on loan from Monaco in the summer of 2019, before finally sealing a permanent move for a then club record of €45m as per transfermarkt.

Tielemans has everything that a midfielder needs to succeed under Klopp and his ability to fit in either a defensive or attacking midfielder would be another feather in Liverpool’s hat.
