Leicester fans will now be hoping that Youri Tielemans, another Liverpool-linked player, will follow suit in the coming weeks.
Maddison to stay
In a further boost to the Foxes, James Maddison now looks set to stay at the King Power Stadium this summer. The Englishman was subject to interest from Arsenal, but the Gunners have since moved on to Real Madrid’s Martin Odegaard, and are set to have the deal tied up by the end of the week.

With so much already forked out on an attacking midfielder, and Emile Smith Rowe also at the club, it appears as though Leicester City fans can rest easy for the rest of the window when it comes to Maddison.
Foxes to keep an eye on Dutch outfit
101 reported the interest earlier in the week in PSV Eindhoven’s highly-rated winger Noni Madueke. However, any potential summer move for the youngster could now hinge on PSV’s European aspirations.

The Dutch side lost the first leg of their two-legged Champions League qualifier 2-1 to Benfica in Portugal, and will now have to turn it around in the second leg to head through.
The return leg, to be played in five days, is one to keep an eye on for Leicester fans, and one which would potentially sway the future of their aspirations to sign Madueke.
