Spanish champions Atletico Madrid are hot on the trail of Anderlecht midfielder Youri Tielemans, according to AS.
Los Colchoneros are in the market for midfield reinforcements and they appear ready to step up their interest in the Belgian footballer.
The 17-year-old has been showing incredible maturity for his fragile age and he has already amassed 59 league appearances and featured in 10 Champions League matches.
Capable of playing as both central midfielder and attacking midfielder, the youngster has impressed Atletico Madrid scouts and he could be moving to Vicente Calderon as early as next summer.
There are no doubts Anderlecht chiefs will attempt to keep hold of their prized asset for another season, but chances are they will not be able to resist a big money offer for his services.
Atletico Madrid will be vying local rivals Real Madrid for a place in the Champions League semi-finals, and they are 8/5 shot to make it through.
