And according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, the midfielder doesn’t plan on extending his stay in the Midlands.

Romano tweeted: “I’ve been told Youri Tielemans will NOT extend his contract with Leicester.

“New deal bid has been turned down – current one expires in 2023.

“Of course, Youri will be professional, he’s focused on Leicester. Many top clubs want him for June.”

Tielemens, 24, is understood to be on the radar of Leicester’s Prem rivals Arsenal and Manchester United.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta is said to be a long-term admirer of the former Anderlecht man.

United, meanwhile, see the midfielder as a cheaper alternative to England internationals Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips.

Foxes chief Rodgers is desperate to retain Tielemen’s services but recently admitted he could soon leave the club.

The Northern Irishman said last month: “He is at an age and at a stage in his contract where he has to ensure he looks at every option.

“I would love it to be here at Leicester, that is natural, but I understand it’s a very short career.

“For players, it’s about ambition, the challenge and sometimes it’s about a different environment. We have seen it before many times.

“Teams have won the Champions League and the player will move on. That’s the nature of it.

“For me, I can only worry about keeping improving him as a player, keeping him focused and letting everything else be taken care of.

“We have a close relationship, it’s really strong. I made a commitment to him when I first came in that we would improve him as a player and he believes in the environment.

Brendan Rodgers recently admitted Youri Tielemens could soon leave the King Power

“Once the player is committed, focused and professional it’s never a worry for me.

“With Youri, you can see his joy of being here, he loves being here and you have to respect these guys’ careers are short.”

Tielemens and his Leicester team-mates will be back on Sunday afternoon, welcoming West Ham to the King Power Stadium.
