Tue 15 June 2021 | 8:03

The Belgium star has been linked with a move away from Leicester City in recent weeks.

Youri Tielemans

was a key player for

Leicester City

in their 2020-21 campaign. The Belgian midfielder featured in 38 league matches for the Foxes, scoring six goals and providing four assists. However, the highlight of the 24-year-old’s performance was his match-winner against

Chelsea

in the FA Cup final. The midfielder has been linked with a move to

Liverpool

ahead of the summer transfer window but says he is currently focused on

Belgium

’s Euro 2020 campaign.

"I don't look at that, I just focus on this tournament,"

Tielemans told reporters.

"I've said that several times.

"Whatever happens after, we'll see. I just want to focus on the tournament, that's it."

Tielemans has two years left on his current contract with Leicester City and he is reportedly available for a fee of around £68 million in the summer. Asked about the market value, the Belgium midfielder responded:

"That does nothing [for me]. It's nice for journalists and for the internet,

"I'm just focused on the Euros and making the most of it. That is all."

Having won their first match with a 3-0 result against

Russia

, Belgium will continue the tournament with two group-stage matches against

Denmark

and

Finland

on June 17 and 21.
