Tielemans would suit the way that Liverpool play - Emile Heskey

Sat 19 June 2021 | 13:22

Emile Heskey understands why Youri Tielemans would be targeted, While he believes that Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane will not leave Anfield.

The 24-year-old Tielemans, who is with Belgium at Euro 2020, is one of Liverpool's main options to boost the team, but his contract with Leicester City is valid until 2023, and the transfer in the summer will not be cheap for the Reds.

Heskey was asked if he thinks

Tielemans

is a proper choice for Jürgen Klopp, and he told Goal: "

Tielemans is a fantastic player. Tielemans is the kind of player that would suit any midfield and any team

.

"He excites you because he does the simple things very, very well - the simple passes from here to there and you look at them and think 'that was crisp, that was nice', that slide pass that sometimes gets cut out doesn't with Tielemans because he is so crisp with his passing. He would fit into any team. 

"The good thing for Leicester is, they don't need to sell. You have got to pay, and you might have to pay over the odds. Leicester don't need to sell, the player is happy. Winning the FA Cup helped, it would have helped even more if they had got into the Champions League but being in the Europa League is still good.

"I think he would suit the way that Liverpool play, but you would have to prise him from Leicester."

French centre-half Ibrahima Konate has been linked with the Reds for some time, and there are rumors that Salah and Mane will leave the club in the summer, but the former Liverpool striker believes that both players will stay at Anfield at least for next season.

He said:

"I expect them to be there. It's a funny one. I don't know where it has to come from. I guess it might be because of their age

"Salah had another fantastic season, goals and assists. Mane had a good season - considering what everyone was saying, he did have a good season. I don't where it has all come from, but the manager won't want to get rid of them. I think he will want to add.

"Another thing is, who is coming up next? It would be good if he had a youth player. This is where Liverpool have always had talent coming through. In midfield, there is Curtis Jones. He has got midfielders to really watch and hone his skills around, to make him a first-team player. They need the wingers now, some young wingers, to look at Salah and Mane and see what they can bring to the game and how they can be the next wingers to come through. They have to pass on knowledge. 

"They do need to bring some players in, but I don't think those players are going to be leaving."
