The Leicester City midfielder is out of contract with the English club next summer
Barcelona director of football Mateu Alemany has said the club are keeping an eye on the free agents market as they look to continue to evolve their squad.
Defender Iñigo Martinez of Athletic Club is one player who is out of contract next summer, while there are several midfielders on Barça's list as well, such as Jorginho and Kante at Chelsea, but the one who is of real interest is Leicester City's Belgian international Youri Tielemans.
Tielemans has proven his level in the Premier League and would adapt perfectly to Barça. His ideal position is as an interior and the club see him as the perfect replacement for Frenkie de Jong if the Dutchman leaves for a big fee next summer. Financially, it would be a great bit of business as Tielemans would arrive for nothing.
For now, Tielemans has not agreed a renewal with Leicester and will make a decision on his future after the World Cup. However, he is unlikely to stay at Leciester. Barça have sounded out a deal before and remain keen but there is also Premier League interest, including from Liverpool.
