Barcelona plan move for Leicester midfielder Youri Tielemans

Barcelona are weighing up a move for Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans.

Mundo Deportivo says Barcelona are planning on testing the waters but his £46million price tag will make it near enough impossible to sign him.

Tielemans will be a key figure for the Foxes as they try to kick-start their Europa League campaign against Spartak Moscow on Wednesday afternoon, after the 24-year-old produced an inspirational performance to help them beat Manchester United 4-2 last Saturday.

Yet the big issue for Leicester is their star's contract, which runs out at the end of next season.

If Leicester have still not agreed new terms with Tielemans they will be under serious pressure to sell next summer, or risk losing him on a free 12 months later.
