McManaman questions Liverpool link for Leicester ace Tielemans

Liverpool hero Steve McManaman doesn't believe the Reds hold an interest in Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans.

McManaman admits he's a fan of the Belgian.

He told horseracing.net: "I certainly think he's good enough. He's done really well and starred in this Leicester team and played very well. I also know he's done very well in the Belgium shirt. But you're trying to shoehorn people into areas where they've got loads of bodies there already.

"Do I think Liverpool will spend next summer? The answer would be yes. They'll have a big pot of money next year when I think they'll spend properly again. But it's all just about picking the right area; whether you get rid of two or three in the midfield to bring in Tielemans is another thing. At the moment there is congestion.

"You've got Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott coming in there – younger players with huge amounts of talent – Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. There are bodies galore! Do they need a Tielemans at this moment in time? No. He's a really good player, but I just don't see where he fits in."
