According to several outlets, The Express amongst many, Tottenham are embroiled in a three way scrap for the service of Youri Tielemans.
The Monaco midfielder spent the latter half of the 2018/19 season on loan at Leicester City – which must have been an interesting cultre shock for the lad – scoring 3 goals in 13 Premier League appearances.
In the 2016/17 season, Tielemans was a regualt starter for Anderlecht, with whom the 22 year old began his professional career in 2013.
Now, the suggestion is that Spurs and Manchester City are seeking to spoil The Foxes’ party and agree a permanent deal with Monaco.
The truth is that Youri was offered to Pochettino, and that was it.
The Harry Hotspur blog understands from a source close to THFC that at this stage, no further discussions have taken place.
Unless something seismic were to occur that involves Daniel Levy having an out of body experience, and suddenly going all out for the player, this transfer gossip is all about cementing a full contract with Leicester City.
There are 3 years to run on Tielemans’ Monaco deal and it is believed that the player’s agent Peter Smeets is simply looking for a concrete solution.
