are lining up a bid for midfielder Youri Tielemans, according to Sportmediaset.

The Italian TV programme reports that the club a considering an offer for the 21-year-old in either January or at the end of the season.

Tielemans was signed for €25million (£22m) from in 2017 but initially struggled to hold down a first-team place under boss Jardim.

The Belgian made just 24 starts last season in all competitions, scoring once and providing two assists.

However this campaign, Tielemans has been a regular starter.  He has been named in the starting lineup for all nine of Monaco’s matches.

The midfielder has already bettered his goal tally from last season, scoring in the 3-2 defeat to and the 1-1 draw against earlier this month.

With Tielemans now firmly established at Monaco, it remains to be seen whether the Ligue One side would be prepared to sell the player.
