Liverpool urged to snare £40m Leicester City recruit by former midfielder

The Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp has written in The Daily Mail that he’d love Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool to land Youri Tielemans from Leicester City.

He believes that Jurgen Klopp’s side have a good midfield department. However, Jamie has said that he would to see his former club bring Belgium international Tielemans to Anfield.

The former Liverpool man wrote in The Daily Mail: “I’m surprised they didn’t bolster their midfield this summer though. James Milner is like Peter Pan, the way he never ages, and we hope Jordan Henderson stays healthy.

“Then there’s Fabinho and Thiago. But I would have loved to see someone like Youri Tielemans snapped up.”

Youri has actually been linked with a transfer to Liverpool in the summer transfer market.

Het Nieuwsblad reported two months ago that the Reds want to snap up the 24-year-old as a replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum.

The new Premier League campaign has already started, and it’s really hard to see the Foxes let go of one of their key men now.

Boss Brendan Rodgers will want to keep all of his star players in the team and won’t want to sell Tielemans at all.

They paid AS Monaco £40 million to land Tielemans on a permanent contract in the summer transfer market of 2019, according to The Guardian.

The midfielder has netted 12 goals in 88 appearances in the English top-flight so far in his professional career.
