Patson Daka has announced himself to Leicester City fans in the past week, having scored five goals during the Foxes’ victories over Manchester United and Spartak Moscow.

The striker became the first Zambian to score in the Premier League when he netted Leicester’s final goal in the 4-2 victory over the Red Devils on Saturday, and then became his nation’s first goalscorer in European competition when he netted four times to give Brendan Rodgers’ side victory in the Europa League on Wednesday.

Having netted his first goals for his new side since signing from Red Bull Salzburg over the summer, Leicester fans will now be hoping Daka can continue his fine form when they travel to Brentford on Sunday.

Now, however, it appears that one of his teammates is considering a future elsewhere.

Tielemans has been a standout performer for the Foxes since arriving in Leicester in 2019

According to 90min, midfielder Youri Tielemans has rejected the club’s latest offer to extend his contract, casting doubt over his future at the club.

The report states that the Belgian has told his current employers that he is not ready to commit to a long-term deal and, while he isn’t going to push for a move away immediately, he may consider other options in the future.

A number of clubs have reportedly been made aware of the developments, including Premier League trio Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United.

Liverpool are yet to source a replacement for Gini Wijnaldum, who departed for Paris Saint-Germain over the summer, and could target Tielemans.

The midfielder, who arrived in England from Monaco for around £40 million in 2019, is apparently keen to play regular Champions League football.

Leicester are, however, hopeful that Rodgers can persuade the player to commit to a long-term future at the club.

The 24-year-old, whose stunning strike gave Leicester victory in last season’s FA Cup final against Chelsea, has also reportedly attracted interest from Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Bayern Munich.
