Chelsea should be interested in signing Leicester midfielder Youri Tielemans, according to ex-Manchester United star Kleberson.
The Brazilian claims that the Blues would be a better fit for the Foxes player than his former club:
“Youri Tielemans is not at a big club. Leicester City don’t have the pulling power that some of the other Premier League teams possess. I could see Tielemans going to Chelsea because their style would suit him. When you watch Chelsea play, they are more comfortable with the ball.”
Supporters on Twitter are mostly behind the Blues making a bid for Tielemans in the summer, although a few do feel there are better options out on the market than the Belgian international:

If we went for him we would definitely need a Rice or Tchoumeni to make him work, good player but I don’t think he would make the most sense

Makes sense he should go to a club like Chelsea. Good point

We Want Tchouameni!! Let Tielemans go, even if I back him to make it wherever he goes with his ability

Tielemans will have just one year left on his contract in the summer and reports in the Belgian media suggest that the 24-year-old could be sold for as little as €40m (£34m).
That is an excellent price if you consider the midfielder’s ability. Whether Chelsea would actually make a move for Tielemans, though, it remains to be seen. The London club were tentatively linked back in October, but it is believed that Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool are his three main suitors in England.
