“Naturally, because of his talent, there is going to be interest in him – he will go on one day and become one of the world’s best centre-halves. But, at this moment, he is very calm, he is very happy, he is training very well, he loves the club, has great relations with all the staff and is in a very, very happy place.”
The report continues that Leicester are expecting an offer for midfielder Youri Tielemans before the transfer window closes on September 2. The Belgian has just 12 months on his contract and is not expected to sign a new deal.
Arsenal and Manchester United have both been linked with Tielemans. Rodgers commented on the player’s situation: “It’s no different to what it was a number of months ago. The club has not had an offer. Youri is here with one year to go on his contract.
“Like he always has been, he is the ultimate professional, a great player to work with. He hasn’t committed yet to a new contract here, but it doesn’t take away his commitment every day for the team.”
