FOOTBALL: Liverpool to join Leicester midfielder Yuri Thielemans in battle for transfer contract expires this summer

Liverpool are keen to sign Yuri Tielemans in the next transfer window

Liv­er­pool are keen to sign Yuri Tiele­mans in the next trans­fer window.

Arse­nal are set to sign the 25-year-old to join the Mersey­side side, accord­ing to Calciomercato.

The Bel­gian inter­na­tion­al’s con­tract runs until the sum­mer of 2023 and Leices­ter are con­sid­er­ing cash­ing in before he leaves for free.

Tyele­mans is unlike­ly to sign an exten­sion and will be free to nego­ti­ate with clubs out­side Eng­land from 1 January.

Juven­tus and Real Madrid are also look­ing for­ward to the day.

But Pre­mier League rivals Arse­nal and Man­ches­ter Unit­ed are the main com­peti­tors in Liv­er­pool’s price cut talks in January.

The Gun­ners have been push­ing for Thiele­mans for the past year, but have yet to make a for­mal offer.

Mikel Arte­ta could make a bid for the Bel­gian if he can get him for a low price.

The play­er has already left Leices­ter and wants to join a team com­pet­ing in the Cham­pi­ons League.

But one report claims that Yuri Tiele­mans is the ‘cho­sen one’ of Man­ches­ter Unit­ed man­ag­er Eric ten Haag.

Mean­while, the 2015–16 Pre­mier­ship cham­pi­ons moved Wes­ley Fofana to Chelsea last month and key play­er Kasper Schme­ichel to Nice.

Bren­dan Rodgers’ side are bot­tom of the Pre­mier League with just one point from their open­ing sev­en games.

We play Not­ting­ham For­est on Mon­day night.
