Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers could break club’s transfer record by signing Youri Tielemans, according to the Mirror.

With transfer fees seeming to rise season-by-season, Brendan Rodgers has hinted that Leicester could be sticking to that trend by signing on-loan Youri Tielemans from his parent club AS Monaco.

Tielemans joined the Foxes in January and has been a revelation for the side, scoring two goals and providing five assists in just ten Premier League appearances.

Leicester have made improvements under Brendan Rodgers.

The Belgium international would likely to cost around the £40million mark, which would far surpass the £29million fee the Midlands club paid for Islam Slimani in 2016.

When speaking to the press yesterday, Rodgers conceded that quality players come at a price.

He said:“The money is going up, absolutely. We shall see. As you know, the numbers go up each year. You pay for quality. The notion has been to bring in a talent and develop them. There is a lot of work going on and a weekly meeting in terms of recruitment.”

Leicester fans will be hoping the club make the 21-year-old a permanent signing, as they move in to their first full season with Rodgers as manager.
