Serie A leaders, Inter Milan are interested in signing the Leicester City midfielder who has impressed with his performances this season.
Inter Milan, currently sit on top of Serie A and have opened up a nine-point lead over the second placed, AC Milan. Antonio Conte had revamped his side in the previous summer, signing players like Achraf Hakimi and Arturo Vidal to help Inter Milan find back it’s glory days.
In the past year or two, Inter Milan have been one of the most active teams in the transfer window. One of the leagues which have attracted their attention is the Premier League. Inter have signed the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez, Christian Eriksen among many others from England’s top-flight competition. Now, the Italian side is considering a move for Leicester’s midfielder, Youri Tielemans, as reported by Todo Fichajes.
The 23-year old Belgian has impressed one and all with his performances this seasons. Tielemans is the backbone of Leicester City and has helped his side remain consistently in the top 4 in the Premier League. He has a great understanding of the game and can contribute with goals as well. The Belgian has scored seven goals this season, which is a decent number for a centre-defensive midfielder.
The Belgian’s contract runs out in the summer of 2023, and it would cost Inter Milan a hefty price to sign Tielemans. He was signed by Leicester in 2019 from Monaco and has exceeded all expectations so far. Inter are willing to pay up to 40 million euros to secure his services. However, given his age and his current contract situation, he is expected to cost the Italian side at least 60 million euros. Antonio Conte has given his nod and wants to close the deal as soon as possible before other clubs start entering the race to sign the Belgian.
