Leicester slashes asking price for Youri Tielemans
Admirers of Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans have reportedly been handed a boost ahead of the summer transfer window.
The 24-year-old has proven invaluable to the Foxes since January 2019, making 105 appearances in the Premier League and scoring the winning goal as his club won the FA Cup final last season.
However, the Belgium international has always been tipped to eventually move to a bigger club, something which is likely to occur later in 2022 with the player having little interest in extending his contract past 2023.
According to Het Nieuwsblad, Leicester are now willing to accept offers of £35m, a considerable reduction on the £60m that they have previously demanded.
Manchester United are regarded as long-term suitors of Tielemans, while Arsenal, Real Madrid and Juventus are also said to be monitoring the situation.
While any interested club may attempt to negotiate an even lower fee, Leicester will hope that a bidding war takes place at the end of the campaign.
