Leicester remain favourites in the chase for Tielemans

Leicester remain favourites in the chase for Tielemans Leicester City are still at the front of the queue as the race to sign Youri Tielemans on a permanent deal from AS Monaco intensifies. The Belgian made 12 appearances for the Foxes following his loan move in January, and the French club are now demanding £40 million for the youngster. Reports from The Telegraph suggest that a return to The Foxes would be the preferred destination for the 22-year-old midfielder, who has already become popular with the fans, as well as manager Brendan Rodgers.

Tielemans has impressed for Leicester since he joined on a temporary deal from Monaco in the January transfer window. According to HLN, Leicester are in talks with Monaco about a permanent deal this summer and the Ligue 1 club are standing firm over their €45 million (£38.3m) valuation.

Leicester City are reportedly in talks with Monaco over the possibility of signing midfielder Youri Tielemans . The 21-year old, who was part of the Belgium squad that finished third in the summer's World Cup, has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League over the years.

Leicester City are in talks with AS Monaco over a permanent move for midfielder Youri Tielemans.

The Belgium international impressed during his short loan spell with the Foxes, and is said to be keen on a permanent move to the King Power Stadium this summer.

According to Sky Sports, Leicester are in talks with Monaco and discussions are said to be going well, but the deal is complicated by interest in Adrien Silva.

The Portugal international was part of the loan swap deal that saw Tielemans move to Leicester, and Monaco are reportedly keen on signing the midfielder permanently, meaning the Foxes could use Silva as part of a player plus cash offer for Tielemans.

However, interest in Silva is reportedly high with a number of sides from across Europe eyeing a move for the midfielder.

Therefore Leicester would be forced to offer a cash only deal for the midfielder, who is said to be valued at £40million by Monaco.

(@LCFC) The Foxes took the Belgian midfielder on a loan deal in the January transfer window midway through last season. Tielemans impressed under Claude Puel before he was sacked and proceeded to shine following the appointment of Brendan Rodgers, who has pushed to secure his services permanently. The young midfielder joins in a deal believed to be worth £40 million from AS Monaco, who signed him from RSC Anderlecht as he began to catch the eye on the European stage.
