Manchester United tipped to beat Liverpool to cut-price Leicester City transfer

  Manchester United tipped to beat Liverpool to cut-price Leicester City transfer Youri Tielemans could leave Leicester City this summer with growing interest from Premier League giantsTielemans has been the subject of interest from Liverpool and Manchester United in recent months, with Arsenal also tipped to make a move. Even Spanish giants Real Madrid are said to be keeping a close eye on developments as they view the 24-year-old as a possible Toni Kroos replacement.

Good morning and welcome to our Leicester City coverage on Sunday, April 17. Here's a round-up of the latest headlines as the Foxes prepare to face Newcastle United in the Premier League.

Arsenal hold transfer 'meeting with agent' over Tielemans

Arsenal have reportedly met with the agent of Youri Tielemans as speculation over the Leicester City midfielder’s future continues to rage.

The Foxes’ FA Cup match-winner could leave the King Power Stadium, either this summer for a fee or next summer for free when his contract expires. Talks have been held over a new City deal, but to no avail.

Reports in February claimed Tielemans had decided against extending his stay at Leicester, although Brendan Rodgers insisted that was not the case. Last month, Tielemans insisted he was open to staying at City, but not had not made a decision about his future.

Rodgers could buck European trend with XI vs Newcastle

Leicester City return to Premier League action against Newcastle United on Sunday following their fabulous European victory over PSV Eindhoven.

The Foxes scored two late goals, through James Maddison and Ricardo Pereira, to come from behind and win 2-1 at the home of the Dutch giants. There is far less riding on the clash with Newcastle, who are virtually safe after pulling clear of the drop zone under Eddie Howe. Due to their three games in hand on West Ham United and Wolves, City could still push for a European place via the league, but their current position of ninth looks to be a more likely finish.

Brendan Rodgers found a piece to solve his Leicester City puzzle but rethink may still be needed

  Brendan Rodgers found a piece to solve his Leicester City puzzle but rethink may still be needed A look at the decision to opt for Youri Tielemans in the deeper midfield role against PSV, the impact that had on City's performance, and whether it needs to change in EindhovenRodgers admitted he had a dilemma in finding a player to fit the deepest midfield position against PSV Eindhoven with neither the injured Wilfred Ndidi nor ineligible Papy Mendy to choose from, and with none of the remaining players perfect for the role.

However, the remaining Premier League games do offer Brendan Rodgers’ players the chance to play themselves into his plans for the Europa Conference League semi-final against Jose Mourinho’s Roma later this month, and hopefully the final in the Albanian capital of Tirana against either Feyenoord or Marseille.

City may already have the next Vardy in their ranks

While Jamie Vardy still feels ten years younger than he actually is, it may not be too long before Leicester City have to have a serious look at replacing him.

A fully-fit Jamie Vardy is still among the best Premier League strikers on his day, his record of 10 goals in 18 Premier League appearances this season proves exactly that.

But now is a better time than any to start the hunt for his replacement, and that could start closer to home than many would expect. City need only look to their under-18s.
