PL No.8 playmaker responds to Liverpool transfer rumours

Leicester City playmaker Youri Tielemans has brushed off transfer rumours that have linked him with a switch to Liverpool.

The Merseyside Reds are on the search for Georginio Wijnaldum’s replacement, after the Dutch international finalised a move to PSG, and Tielemans is reportedly of interest to Jurgen Klopp.

Tielemans has enjoyed his highest-scoring campaign with Brendan Rodgers’s side during the 2020-21 season, when he found the back of the net on six times, including an FA Cup-winning goal against Chelsea.

Currently the 24-year-old is on international duty with Belgium and he addressed any transfer rumours in a pre-match conference: “That’s really none of my business right now. Let the journalists speak. They undoubtedly have a lot to do with that.

“But I don’t care about that. All I can do is make sure that I am as good as possible on the pitch. I don’t think about it. I am focusing on the Euros.

“I don’t listen to transfer rumours. No matter how much I am valued, it doesn’t change anything for me. I just want to make the best Euros I can.”

Tielemans arrived at the King Power back in 2019 and has gone on to score 17 goals and provide 19 assists in 108 games for the club.
