Is this the reason Leicester City’s star midfielder Youri Tielemans is currently delaying the signing of a new Foxes contract?

While James Maddison’s form is discussed at length, as well as his focus or whether the No.10’s head has “been turned”, Youri Tielemans carries on quietly producing some of the Premier League’s most standout, complete midfield work.

Although the Belgian had a less productive game against Manchester City, Tielemans usually dominates even the bigger clubs’ players in the middle to an extent. Liverpool are pretty much known admirers of the 24-year-old; now three other juggernauts have apparently entered the race for his signature.

According to Daily Mail, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester United also fancy stealing away one of the, if not the, foremost asset on Filbert Way.

Could this be the reason for the delay over Tielemans’ reported transfer negotiations? Foxes of Leicester judge it as a distinct possibility.

Leicester City fast difficult Napoli test but Italy will be even worse

When the anticipation for the new European campaign dissipates and the Europa League begins for real on Thursday night, Leicester fans will likely realise what a tough group they are in this season. This is thanks in part to a fairly potent Napoli side, along with their passionate and adoring fan base.

King Power Stadium shall be rocking and certainly a lot louder than it was versus the Citizens; the core Foxes supporters remain noisy, but what the LCFC team truly requires is the less vocal faithful to join in with the singing and backing of the men. Thusly, KPS could once again be a hard place to visit – even for relatively formidable outfits such as the Naples eleven. In Italy, at least the team can rely on the chanting Blue Army.
