Arsenal have been encouraged in their interest for Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans.

Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers admits the midfielder has to 'look at all options'.

Speculation surrounding the Belgian ace's future continues after he entered the final 18 months of his current contract at the King Power.

The Northern Irishman said: "You always have to [plan for life without players], that is key. You always have to be looking ahead, that's important.

"Youri is at an age and at a stage in his contract where he has to ensure he looks at every option.

"I would love it to be here at Leicester, that is natural, but I understand it's a very short career.

"Once the player is committed, focused and professional it's never a worry for me.

"With Youri you can see his joy of being here, he loves being here and you have to respect these guys' careers are short."
