18-year old Belgium starlet a transfer target for three EPL teams

The summer transfer window in England after the end of this season is surely going to be busy with clubs from all over the country planning big money signings to improve their squad for the next season.

The new and lucrative TV deals will give even the weaker sides plenty of cash to work with and this will see a race for the signature of every player, come this summer.

Recent reports from English newspaper the Mirror, young Anderlecht star Youri Tielemans is on the radar of a number of Premier League clubs this summer.

Belgium’s ‘most promising player’ of 2015, Tielemans has been impressive for the Belgium outfit this season and has played an important role in their growth over the whole season.

At just 18 years of age, Tielemans has over 100 caps for his club and is well experienced beyond his age. His future at the club is currently at jeopardy and it is understood that a move to the Premier League is on the cards this summer.

He became the youngest Belgian to play in the Champions League after making his debut at the age of 16 years and 148 days.

This has seen the likes of Liverpool and Tottenham take interest in the youngsters who have also reportedly sent scouts over to Belgium to watch the teenage sensation up close.

The likes of West Bromwich Albion have also joined the race for the 18-year old mid-field who has also been sensational for the Belgium U-21s.

Tielemans is strong and smart on the ball and has the ability to beat a player with ease. He is also superb with his defensive duties without the possession of the ball and is still loads of time to learn the game even better.

The Mirror report that Tottenham Hotspurs have made the first step to signing the 18-year old and are willing to pay  £12 million for his services. However, the likes of Liverpool, WBA and Atletico Madrid might also make their moves in the summer.

The Spurs have a very strong squad and might not be able to give the Belgian U-21 star a regular place in the starting XI, something he will be promised at the Hawthorns who are going into a summer full of transfer activity.

Liverpool on the other hand have a decent Belgium contingent in their ranks and might be able to use the likes of Origi and Mignolet to get the 18-year old to Anfield.

Do you think Tielemans has a future in the Premier League?
