Barcelona beginning to lose hope of signing Leicester City star Tielemans

Barcelona is losing hope in the signing of Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans as a replacement for Sergi Busquets.

According to Marca,


is interested in the signing 

Youri Tielemans

 in the summer but in recent weeks they feel their chances of getting him have decreased because the Belgian midfielder has not shown interest in accepting their offer. Marca claims that Barcelona thinks Tielemans already has accepted another team's offer.

Barcelona is looking to sign a replacement for Sergi Busquets in the summer and has been linked with Real Sociedad‘s Martin Zubimendi and also Wolves’ Ruben Neves.

The 25-year-old Tielemans will be a free agent in the summer when his contract with Leicester expires and could sign a pre-contract agreement with any team next month. Arsenal wanted to sign him last summer but they did not reach an agreement with Leicester and it is expected Arteta’s side will try again to sign Tielemans next summer on a free transfer.

Tielemans who can play in several midfield positions including attacking midfielder, has scored three goals this season. Tielemans joined


from Moncao on a loan deal in January 2019. He completed a permanent move to Leicester City for an estimated fee of £32 million in July 2019. Tielemans has scored 27 goals in 175 matches for Leicester and won the FA cup with them in 2021.

Tielemans has made 58 appearances for Belgium and was a part of the side that was knocked out of the 2022 World Cup in the group stage.
