Midfielder Youri Tielemans arrived at Leicester City in 2019 from AS Monaco with high expectations. In just three and a half years, Tielemans has developed into a strong, highly sought after midfielder.

The Belgian has just a year remaining on his current Leicester City contract. Tielemans has stated he won't sign a new deal and wants to move on from the King Power Stadium.

A number of teams have shown interest in Tielemans, but there isn't the fervour that was expected just 12 months ago. Tielemans is linked to some of the world's biggest clubs this summer transfer window. However, with one season remaining on his current contract, those clubs could wait until next year to sign Tielemans on a free transfer.

Let's look at Youri Tielemans and the transfer window betting odds on his potential move away from Leicester City.

Youri Tielemans Betting Odds

Arsenal currently lead the race to sign Foxes midfielder Tielemans. The Gunners are looking to reinforce their midfield. Mikel Arteta is looking at other areas as well. Meanwhile, the likes of Paris Saint Germain, Manchester United, and Manchester City are also in the market for midfielders.

Here is a look at the latest Tielemans transfer odds:

Youri Tielemans Transfer News

Arsenal are in the driver's seat to sign Foxes midfielder Tielemans. Yet, the Gunners have turned their attention to adding striker Gabriel Jesus. The latest reports out of north London is that Arsenal have "cooled" their interest in the midfielder.

Tielemans helped Leicester City win the FA Cup in 2020-21. However, his form a season ago dipped. Still, the Belgian scored six goals and assisted four in the Premier League for Leicester City. It was the second straight league season in which Tielemans scored six goals and assisted four. He has never scored more than six Premier League goals.

Paris Saint Germain are also linked with the Belgian international. The Parisians have not been active in the transfer market to this point. The money may not be available to sign new players.

Manchester United are desperate to add new blood to the squad. Erik ten Hag's new side is more interested in Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong at the moment. If a deal for De Jong doesn't come off, Manchester United are likely to turn to the Leicester City player.

Manchester City are focused on Leeds United player Kalvin Phillips, while Liverpool have already turned down the chance of signing Tielemans. A move to Aston Villa would be a sideways step for Tielemans.

Youri Tielemans Transfer Fee

Tielemans is currently valued at £49.5 million by Transfermarkt. It is Tielemans' highest mark. Tielemans has just one season remaining on his current Leicester City contract.

The Foxes will be desperate to sell the midfielder for something rather than lose him in 12 months on a free transfer.

Prior to Arsenal cooling their interest in Tielemans, it was rumoured the Gunners could get the Belgian midfielder for as little as £40 million.

Youri Tielemans Salary

It is claimed that Youri Tielemans earns just £33,000 per week at Leicester City. He will earn just £1.718 million in annual salary in 2022-23. The combination of wanting to play Champions League football and to earn a wage equal to his worth is driving Tielemans to seek football away from Leicester City.

How Old Is Youri Tielemans?

Youri Tielemans is 25 years old. He turned 25 on May 7. The midfielder is still relatively young in the world of football. The mid-20s are considered the prime years for footballers.

Which Clubs Are Interested In Youri Tielemans?

There are other Premier League clubs interested in the midfielder. Manchester United, Manchester City, Aston Villa, and Arsenal have all shown some interest in Tielemans.

Unfortunately for Tielemans, it just doesn't seem that the interest is as strong this summer as it was 12 months ago. Tielemans scored in last year's FA Cup final against Chelsea. At the time, his stock was incredibly high. Leicester City knew Tielemans wasn't interested in signing a new contract but kept him anyway.

Now, the Foxes and Tielemans go into their final contract year. The rest of the Premier League, and teams on the continent, will be watching the situation closely. Tielemans can leave for free in 12 months. Due to the Belgian being a free agent next summer, rival clubs could wait to sign Tielemans without paying a transfer fee.

Man United will raise their interest in Tielemans if they cannot sign Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona. Meanwhile, Premier League champions, Man City, could turn to Tielemans if they are unable to sign Kalvin Phillips.

Youri Tielemans Clubs

Tielemans started his career at famed Belgian club Anderlecht. He joined the club at five years old and advanced through the youth academy. In 2013, at the age of 16, Tielemans signed his first professional contract with Anderlecht.

The midfielder played 185 matches for the Belgian club, scoring 35 goals from midfield. His form caught the eye of AS Monaco in France. Monaco are renowned for developing young players and selling them for high fees.

Tielemans joined Monaco in 2017 for £22.5 million. Unfortunately, Tielemans struggled at Monaco and was often derided by fans. He moved to Leicester City in January 2019 on loan after making 65 appearances and scoring six goals for Monaco.

Leicester City have brought the best out of Tielemans. He has become one of the Premier League's top midfielders. In four and a half seasons, Tielemans has tallied 24 goals in 158 matches in all competitions for the Foxes.
