Leicester midfielder Youri Tielemans could be sold for as little as £25m this summer, according to the Daily Telegraph‘s John Percy.
The journalist reports that the Belgian international is likely to be offloaded for a knockdown price with the player nearing the final year of his contract at the King Power Stadium:
Big summer ahead for #lcfc and Brendan Rodgers.
* 3 major signings wanted
* PSV winger Noni Madueke among the targets
* Trading required to raise funds with squad size to be cut
* Tielemans future still uncertain

Liverpool have been linked with Tielemans on and off over the past year but the most recent reports in the Belgian media suggest Arsenal, Manchester United and Real Madrid are his three main suitors.
The 24-year-old has struggled to recapture the form he showed last season, where he scored the winning goal against Chelsea in the FA Cup final.
That may be one of the reasons why the Reds have cooled their interest in Tielemans, even though he could be available for a very reasonable fee.
It is also possible that manager Jurgen Klopp is looking for a different type of midfielder. Reliable sources suggest that the Merseyside club are keeping tabs on Monaco’s Aurelien Tchouameni, while Lille’s Amadou Onana has also been linked.
