Brendan Rodgers has denied reports that star midfielder Youri Tielemans has turned down a new contract at Leicester City.

Liverpool and Manchester United have been linked to the Belgian international, while Real Madrid and Barcelona are also rumored to be interested.

Leicester have offered Tielemans a lucrative new deal that would make him one of the top earners at the club, as Rodgers sees the 24-year-old as an integral part of his team’s ambitions to challenge Europe.

Tielemans has less than two years left on his current deal that expires in June 2023 and last week’s reports claimed that he had chosen not to write about the new offering.

“There are reports, but there have been no rejections,” Rodgers said. I think there is only dialogue between the club and the people of Youri. I think the club is waiting for an answer. But that is something that is out of my control. What I can control is his mentality, his commitment to the team, and that cannot be questioned. ‘

Tielemans has been one of Leicester’s most prominent players since arriving from Monaco in 2019, the club’s record of £ 40 million, following a one-season loan, and his goal that sealed the Foxes’ first Cup win. FA last season will be remembered forever in its history.

Despite doubts about his future, he has started Leicester’s last 64 Premier League games, the longest streak of any outfielder in the division, and will extend it today against Brentford.

“My role is to improve him as a player, to make sure that he is focused and that his commitment is in his performance and in the team. I don’t think you can argue against that. He hasn’t lost concentration at all. He is a really talented young player. I love working with him.

‘I understand the nature of the game. If your commitment and focus change, then it becomes a problem. But I don’t see that with Youri at all. It is so professional. He is a very respectful young man.

“His representatives have a job in terms of trying to do the best they can for him. I try to focus on football and give it my best. ”

Chief Rodgers has also praised Tielemans' professionalism and insists he has not lost focus.

Tielemans revealed last month that he was keeping his options open on whether he would compromise his future with Leicester.

I am open to everything. The transfer market has just closed, but I want to keep as many options as I can, ‘he told Sky Sports in September.

‘There are ongoing talks, I am not saying I am going to sign, I am not saying I am not going to sign. We will see.’

Meanwhile, Brentford boss Thomas Frank admitted that Leicester’s fairytale title win in 2016 inspired him to dream of what could be accomplished with his newly promoted team.

The Bees have enjoyed a good start to the campaign, beating Arsenal on opening day, scoring points against Liverpool and bombarding Chelsea’s goal in a valiant defeat last weekend.

“We need those stories in sport that the underdog can beat everyone,” Frank said. ‘It gives everyone hope.

“ I clearly remember that everyone was cheering for Leicester because we all wanted them to beat the establishment. And you desperately wanted them to win.

“ I almost get goose bumps now because I think what they do is amazing. Those players remain heroes to this day in Leicester.

I think it is important in life to dream. We need to dream. We need to hope for something better in life, we need to hope for a better world. We need to wish the best for our children.

“Of course I dream of great things and I hope to achieve great things and the players do the same, and not only this season and also in the future. But we have to dream and believe as if we did not do it that we will never achieve anything. ‘
