Chelsea have joined the list of clubs interested in a summer move for Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans.
The Belgian international, who scored from the penalty spot against West Ham on Sunday, has less than 18 months on his current deal to go, and has told the East Midlands club he has no interest in signing a new contract.
With Leicester looking to sell him whist they can still extract maximum value for him, that has put a number of clubs on alert, including Manchester United and Arsenal.
The newly crowned World Club Champions and already blessed with a number of midfield options, but they minded to go after Tielemans aware that he isa top talent, and a player they would not want to see play for one of their main rivals.
Declan Rice and Aurélian Tchouaméni also remain summer targets for Thomas Tuchel’s side.
