The hero of Leicester’s FA Cup victory is set to have a memorable season rewarded with a hefty new deal. The Daily Mail reports Leicester bosses will hold contract talks with midfielder Youri Tielemans, who scored the winner in the Foxes’ Wembley win over Chelsea, at the end of the season. The paper says Tielemans is likely to receive a pay bump which would move him closer to the club’s highest earners Jamie Vardy and Kasper Schmeichel.

What the papers say

The paper also says Arsenal winger Willian will leave the Gunners in the summer. Citing a report from Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, the paper says a number of European clubs have already expressed an interest in the 32-year-old, while David Beckham’s Inter Miami are believed to be among the front-runners for his signature.

Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld is holding out on making a decision about his future until the club lines up their new manager, according to the Daily Express. Should he decide to leave, the paper – citing Belgian outlet Voetbal 24 – says Club Brugge are keen on signing the 32-year-old in the summer.

The Sun reports Crystal Palace are preparing a move for Juventus midfielder Radu Dragusin, with the Italian club believed to be open to a loan move – as long as he receives plenty of regular first-team football.
