He astonville has decided to join the race to sign the talented midfielder youri tielemans, who is currently without a contract after leaving Leicester City at the end of last season, as reported The Athletic. The 26-year-old Belgian player is one of the most coveted free agents on the transfer market.
Tielemans had an outstanding season with Leicester, scoring 4 goals and providing two assists in the 37 games he played. His quality and versatility in midfield have drawn the attention of several clubs, including Aston Villa.
Aston Villa joins the bid for Tielemans
Villa manager Unai Emery has expressed his desire to bring the signing of Tielemans to fruition quickly, especially after failing to secure a midfield target during the January transfer window. Emery recognizes the importance of strengthening that area of the pitch and sees in Tielemans a player who can make a difference.
Tielemans joined Leicester City from AS Monaco, initially on loan in January 2019, before the move was made permanent six months later. During his four years at King Power, he made 195 appearances for the club and played a key role in the team’s success, including successive fifth-place finishes in 2019 and 2020, as well as the FA Cup victory in 2021, where he scored the winning goal against Chelsea at Wembley.
Not only Aston Villa are interested in signing Tielemans, as other Premier League clubs have also shown interest in the former Anderlecht midfielder. However, Villa have a positive track record in signing free agents, as evidenced by the successful signing of Boubacar Kamara, who has been a key player in the team this season.
Aston Villa are expected to approach Tielemans soon in a bid to secure his signing. If they succeed, it would be a great boost for the team, as they would have a high-quality and experienced player in their squad for next season. Watch out for the next moves in this exciting bid for the talented Belgian midfielder.
