Tielemans has enjoyed a successful debut campaign with the Foxes, and says Manchester City star De Bruyne has had an influence on his game.
"At the minute, we have a lot of very good midfielders in the game and I just try and pick all the positives from all the midfielders around," Tielemans told the Athletic.
"I really try and improve myself through watching others play. So, when I see another player playing I'm like, 'Oh yeah, that's something I need to improve' and then I'm trying it in a training session.
"At the moment, I think the best in the Premier League is De Bruyne. He just stands out. He is the complete midfielder. He is physical and runs a lot.
"Technically, he keeps it very, very easy. Tactically, he is very good as well. He's got everything."
