Youri Tielemans is a Belgian midfielder born on May 7, 1997, who plays for Leicester City. Tielemans is considered one of Europe’s brightest prospects after coming through Anderlecht's youth ranks and accumulating more than 100 league appearances before the age of 20. The smooth-passing midfielder is also the youngest Belgian player to have featured in the UEFA Champions League following his debut at the age of 16 years and 148 days.
After catching the eye in his homeland, Tielemans joined French side Monaco in a €25million in the summer of 2017. However, as Les Monegasques faltered, Tielemans struggled to break into the side and Tielemans joined Premier League side Leicester City on loan in January. Having impressed in 13 loan outings, Tielemans signed permanently that summer for £40million.
