Tottenham are reportedly confident that Leicester midfielder Youri Tielemans is ‘open’ to joining the London club this summer.
The Belgian midfielder has been a crucial player for the Foxes since joining from Monaco in January 2019.
After an initial half-season loan, Tielemans signed permanently for a reported £40.5m, penning a four-year contract at the King Power.
He has made 147 appearances for the Premier League side, scoring 24 goals and providing 22 assists in the process.
With his contract expiring at the end of next season, there has been plenty of speculation about the player’s future.
Arsenal, Tottenham, Liverpool, Manchester United and Bayern Munich are all rumoured to be interested.
A report last month claimed that Tielemans will be available for as little as £25m in the summer transfer window with a contract extension looking unlikely at this stage.
Tottenham are confident of landing the 24-year-old, according to GiveMeSport, who say the club’s hierarchy believe he is ‘open to a transfer this summer’.
Champions League qualification will do Spurs no harm in their pursuit of the Leicester man.
The report adds that the north Londoners are keen on re-signing Christian Eriksen, who has starred for Brentford since returning to the Premier League.
