Howey: Leicester have been “really good” for Youri Tielemans

Former Leicester City defender Steve Howey understands that midfielder Youri Tielemans might want a move to Liverpool, but thinks the Foxes have been “really good” for him.

The Leicester midfielder scored a wonder-goal to ensure that the east Midlands outfit won the FA Cup last season against Chelsea and was apart of the Belgium squad for Euro 2020.

Signing for the Foxes from AS Monaco initially on loan, Tielemans made the switch permanent in July 2019 and has become a key player for Leicester, making 108 appearances in all competitions.

However, his time at the King Power Stadium could be coming to an end, with Voetbal24 reporting that Tielemans wants the move to Liverpool. The Daily Mail are reporting that if Jurgen Klopp wants Tielemans though, it will cost at least £64million to secure his signature.

Steve Howey can understand Tielemans wanting the move to Anfield, but also praises Leicester City, saying: “I understand he might want that move, but at the same time I think Leicester has been really good for him.”

After Georginio Wijnaldum’s departure from Anfield, Liverpool have a void in their midfield, and it appears that Tielemans is the target to fill that and also appears from reports that he wants to make the move to Merseyside.
