The Belgian has been forced to rebuild his reputation after a poor spell at Monaco, where he was almost relegated, but his move to the midlands has done just that. 18 goals and 19 assists in 113 games for the Foxes was capped by the midfielder netting the winner in the FA Cup Final against Chelsea.
However, he has just two years left to run on his current deal with Leicester, leading to speculation he could depart in the coming months.

In a recent interview with Sky Sports, Tielemans gave little away, in a move that is likely to prompt further speculation. When asked about his future, the Belgian replied:
“I’m open to everything”
“As long as I’m here I’m going to give everything for the club, I’ve already done so but I’m going to give even more”
“There are talks going on but I’m not saying I’m going to sign, and I’m not saying I won’t sign”
Tielemans 🗣“I’m not saying I will sign, and I’m not saying I won’t sign.”
Reporter 🗣”Keeping your options open.”

Leicester have strengthened their midfield this summer with the addition of Boubakary Soumare this summer, but will certainly be hoping that Tielemans decides to commit his future to the midlands outfit, which may further incentivise them to finally make it back into the Champions League.
