Roma transfer news: Jose Mourinho wants to add Belgium midfielder to squad
Tielemans joined the Foxes initially on loan in January 2019 from French side Monaco and immediately impressed with consistent performances in the midfield, forming a solid partnership with Wilfred Ndidi. And after his man-of-the-match performance and a stunning winning goal in the FA Cup final in 2021 against Chelsea, Tielemans star had never been brighter.
However, rumors that Tielemans wanted to leave and a dip in form meant the midfielder lost his place in the team to youth academy graduate Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall and the 25-year-old Belgium international has let his contract run down meaning he can leave the club for free on 30 June, alerting Jose Mourinho whose Roma side prepare for a Europa League semi-final next week against Xabi Alonso’s Bayer Leverkusen.
