The Belgian starlet featured in Europa League quarter-finals second leg against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Thursday night, a keenly contested tie which went into extra time courtesy of Sofiane Hanni’s goal in the 32nd minute before Marcus Rashford won the game for the visitors in extra time.
Anderlecht prodigy Youri Tielemans has scored 18 goals in all competitions for his club this term and his superb form has caught the attention of English Premier League leaders Chelsea who are reportedly lining up a summer move for the wonderkid.
The Sun cite several reports different countries in reporting that three clubs are battling it out to secure Tielemans’ signature in the upcoming summer transfer window.
Chelsea are not the only side interested in Tielemans, the report claims AS Monaco and Everton are also in the race for his signature.
Though it is understood Everton, who have two Belgians in their first team are currently leading the race to sign Tielemans who is valued at £21m but Monaco have now pulled out.
Chelsea have the financial fire-power to gazump any proposal from Monaco or Everton, but it remains to be seen whether Antonio Conte will turn his interest into a concrete offer.
