Arsenal is reportedly hunting Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans. The Gunners have already secured the services of Brazilian Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City. Mikel Arteta will now be putting his staff to hunt for Midfielders. The main option till yet has been Tielemans who has been on the radar of some big European clubs.
Tielemans, 25, has been in fine form for the Foxes. The Belgian ace has got offers for a contract extension from the management. But he has been adamant about not signing a new contract as he wants to join a better-level club. The Leicester City ace contributed towards 11 goal contributions last season. It is also reported that Tielemans has a soft spot for the Gunners and would not rule out a move this summer.
Multiple reports in England say that Arsenal is leading the race for his signature. Mikel Arteta is very desperate to bring a player of his quality to the Emirates. Arsenal is one of his dreams and working with a young squad full of potential may just be the challenge he needs. Blessed with a brilliant right foot and great vision, Tielemans will be the perfect player alongside Odegaard.
Arsenal means serious Business this summer
Missing Out on Champions League football has been disappointing for Arsenal. The Gunners were in pole position to secure the top 4 spots despite a poor start to the season. But they messed up in the last matchdays giving Tottenham the chance to leapfrog them. Mikel Arteta has made it clear that the team needs reinforcements to battle for titles.
Since then, the club has signed the likes of Marquinhos, Matt Turner, Fabio Vieira, and Gabriel Jesus. They are resilient in getting Tielemans and also battling Manchester United for Lisandro Martinez. The month of July is going to be busy for Mikel Arteta’s side.
