Borussia M’gladbach are stepping up their efforts to sign Belgian midfielder Youri Tielemans from Anderlecht, according to Rheinische Post.
Die Fohlen are preparing for life without Granit Xhaka as their captain looks set to leave for greener pastures at the end of the current campaign.
And the latest reports suggest that Borussia officials believe that Anderlecht starlet Youri Tielemans has been chosen as his potential successor.
Die Folhen have held initial talks with the Belgian giants and further negotiations will be held in the coming days.
Anderlecht seem ready to negotiate the sale of their star footballer, who is currently valued at €12 million.
Youri Tielemans is widely regarded as one of the most impressive products of Anderlecht’s youth academy in recent years, and he has already made 130 league outings for the club.
The 19-year-old has some European experience as well, and it would appear as though he is ready for the next step.
