Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Leicester midfielder Youri Tielemans during the January transfer window.
The Belgian is likely to be available for a low price in the New Year when the player will only have six months remaining on his contract, and fans on Twitter have backed a move to snap him up:
Good signing if he comes

A number of teams have been credited with an interest in Tielemans over the past year, but Arsenal were believed to be frontrunners for his signature.
However, after deciding not to pursue the 25-year-old over the summer, it leaves the door open for United and other clubs to swoop in.
It must be pointed out that the links to Tielemans are pretty speculative at the moment, but manager Erik ten Hag could do with some reinforcements in midfield, especially to take some of the weight off Christian Eriksen, who has started all eight of United’s matches so far this campaign.
